Site gives help on next step

Have your say

YOUNG people in Barnsley can get the lowdown on their prospects for the future with a new online service.

Barnsley Council has funded the UCAS Progress service, provided by the UK’s university application handlers, to allow young people and their parents to check out a directory of local learning opportunities, including BTECs, A-Levels and apprenticeships via a website.

Coun Tim Cheetham, Barnsley Council cabinet member for young people and families, said: “Using UCAS Progress, students can find out information about schools, academies, colleges and training providers, and view information by course, provider or on a map.”
