For students across Nottinghamshire, A Level results day today (Thursday 17 August), marks the culmination of years of study and Nottinghamshire County Council is congratulating students for their hard work.
Councillor Tracey Taylor, Nottinghamshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Children and Families said, “I’d like to congratulate the A Level students across Nottinghamshire on their results. They should be immensely proud of all the years of hard work and dedication they have given to their studies.
“For those who haven’t received the grades they hoped for, they should remember that there are many options and plenty of help available if they are uncertain about what route to take next.
“From higher education options to training alternatives such as apprenticeships, there are lots of options available.”
“I realise that some young people may be seeking alternatives to higher education and many employers, including the County council, offer apprenticeship opportunities which help young people to gain new experiences and work skills.
“Thank you as well to all of the teachers, parents and carers who have supported young people throughout their education.”
Schools and colleges offer support from dedicated advisers and have a wide range of information available. The National Careers Service also provides information to help young people decide on their next steps and the exam results helpline can be contacted on 0800 100 900.
