New Magazine Support Launched for College Students
A new magazine designed to help college students in Lancashire to choose their next career steps has been launched by Future U.
‘The U’ will be distributed to all post-16 sixth form and college students throughout the county to give young people the tools and confidence to decide what their next steps will be, whether that’s applying for university or an apprenticeship.
The magazine will also include activities for students to learn new skills that will help with applications or future careers.
Oliver Norris, Future U Delivery Officer, said: “With future uncertainty, periods of isolation and school or college closures, young people have been hit hard by the impact of the pandemic over the last year.
“However, we wanted to show our young people that there are still opportunities, careers and a bright future ahead of them. We created The U as a resource available to all our young people, regardless of their situation or access to technology.
“By making the resource available online and offline, as a printed booklet, The U can be used as a handbook for anybody approaching big decisions about their future to work towards self-development and empowerment.
“The U will hopefully provide a platform for young people to engage with their own future over the next year whilst Future U will continue to offer additional content, workshops and support to keep young people engaged with what’s ahead of them.”
