Here are just a few examples of our great initiatives that we are leading right now…

Career Coach

Career Coach is a five year coaching programme for children in care. 

Do you remember that person who inspired you in your teenage years? Did you have positive role models to learn from and opportunities to meet people from the world of work?

Bristol WORKS is making a commitment to children in care which will transform lives and empower young people.

Career Coach matches coaches with young people, aged 13 or 14 and looked after by the Local Authority, with inspirational local professionals, based on their interests and preferred ways of learning.

Realising Talent

The Realising Talent initiative (RT) is run by the West of England Combined Authority (WECA) in partnership with the Local Councils for Bristol City (BCC), Bath and NE Somerset (B&NES), and South Gloucestershire (SGC).

This is a WECA funded ‘Pilot’ scheme led by B&NES Council, to provide additional support to 14 – 16 year olds to explore and improve their opportunities at Post 16.

The scheme aims to engage with a group of young people across the region to offer: mentoring, careers advice and guidance, and additional courses to improve health and wellbeing, confidence, life skills and college/job ready skills.

The programme will be put together by B&NES, SGC, BCC, Bath College and 3rd Sector Organisations within the area.
