on .

A new Wiltshire Council website aimed at a range of people including, employers, young people, parents/carers will be launched tomorrow (Tuesday).

Work Wiltshire will have vital employment and skills information all in one place. Along with young people it will also advise employers, those who are vulnerable, have complex needs or disabilities and people who require financial support.

The website is a result of engagement with partners including local schools, Carer Support Wiltshire and Community First to ensure the website provides the most up to date and relevant information for users.

Cabinet member for children, education and skills Laura Mayes said: “I would encourage all young people to visit the website. It’s an effective tool full of great information at what can be a confusing time for some. There is something for everyone and it’s so accessible as it’s all in one place.”

The site will have generic information and links to other relevant websites and local support on 1:1 topics including:

  • Young people’s next steps
  • Apprenticeships
  • Working in Wiltshire
  • Information for employers
  • Further and higher education
  • Support for those with barriers to work
  • Financial support

  • Programmes run by the Wiltshire Council’s Employment & Skills Service
  • Policies and data
