[04 FEB 00] WARWICKSHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL PRESS RELEASE
New Connexions

Coventry and Warwickshire will be one of five areas in the country to pilot a new government initiative bringing service for young people aged 13 19 closer together from April this year.

Connexions will see a seamless service between careers and youth services, with young people being given a personal advisor who will advise and guide them through their learning and careers choices.

Councillor Richard Grant, Education Portfolio holder for Warwickshire County Council, said: 

"I am delighted that Coventry and Warwickshire have been selected to pilot what will be a transformation in services to young people. This is a real step forward in giving this age group much more targeted and direct support, through what can be a difficult time in their lives.

"I hope that by working closely with an advisor who has the knowledge and experience to help guide them through these important development years, we will see young people getting off to a more focused start in their adult lives."
