"Some students will have decided their next steps. For others, it will be a time of reflection, considering options, or adjusting their plans.

"Luckily, there are so many choices and opportunities, from continuing in education to beginning work or learning a career through an apprenticeship. Excellent support is available both through the schools and a number of services that offer help for young people.

"I’d also like to thank the dedicated school staff who have taught, coached, and mentored our students during their time in Oxfordshire’s schools and colleges."

For advice and further information, visit oxme.info/ where any young person aged 16–18 who is not in education, employment, or training can access information, find opportunities, and ask for support.
