Councillor John Peck, Nottinghamshire County Council’s committee chairman for children and young people’s services, praised the young people in schools across the county who have been receiving their A-level and other examination results today.
“I would like to congratulate all young people who have worked so hard to achieve these very good results,” said Coun Peck.
“Whilst many of our young people will be taking up well deserved places at universities and colleges, others will now be accessing an apprenticeship which offers work based learning, in partnership with educational providers.
“To those students who have perhaps not achieved what they had hoped for, there are still opportunities to select other courses at university or college or to seek out work based learning through apprenticeships. Accessing gap year experiences are also an increasing possibility for some young people. These experiences do not necessarily have to be taken abroad but can be accessed through many voluntary aided organisations and charities.
“Today is also an opportunity to thank teachers who have provided the learning opportunities over many years to ensure that our young people can celebrate their achievements today.
“Nottinghamshire teachers have been ambitious in their aspirations for all children and I publicly acknowledge their commitment to Nottinghamshire students.”
