Changes to NEET service provided by Adviza in West Berkshire
22nd Apr 2014
Adviza is passionate about making a difference to the lives of young people, and our focus will continue to be impartial careers guidance and support to many young people age 16-19 in West Berkshire who are not in employment, education or training (NEET), in particular for those who are ‘ready’ to enter employment, education or training (EET).
From Monday 28th April, due to a change in contract arrangements, the way we deliver services in West Berkshire for NEET young people will be changing:
- Our base will move from Waterside Youth & Community Centre to Broadway House in Newbury which is by the Clock Tower at the end of Northbrook Street (see full contact details below).
- Our contact with young people will be by appointment only. Appointments will be available in Newbury on Mondays and Reading on Wednesdays, with outreach appointments also available.
- We will no longer be offering a vacancy service to match and broker opportunities for young people (including the distribution of vacancy lists to young people and to our partners). We will, however, aim to signpost young people to our partners in West Berkshire where possible.
- We will no longer be offering benefits liaison for Jobcentre Plus and completion of ES9s. However, Job Seekers Allowance claimants and other jobseekers aged 16-19 may benefit from attending our ‘Careers Club’ - workshops in small groups to equip young people with the tools to manage their careers and develop their employability skills including CV & application workshops, assessing transferable skills, using social media to support job seeking and more. Contact one of our advisers via the details below for further information and to sign up to the next workshop.
