Cllr Laura Mayes, Cabinet Member for Education and Skills at Wiltshire Council said:

This is a pilot project and is one of the many ways we are offering advice and support to our young people to help them decide the best options for them. It's been a challenging year and working through the myriad of offers and possibilities can be daunting. We hope people will find this hub useful and use it again and again to help them with their choices.

Additional support is available on Young Work Wiltshire including Wilfred Chatbot to answer queries 24/7, weekly vacancy listings, information on apprenticeships, traineeships and kickstart information.
