Ansbury celebrates new contract with DCC
County council awards contract for young people’s training and education support
Dorset County Council and Ansbury Guidance are celebrating the award of a new contract which will see the two organisations work in partnership supporting young people through their training and education needs to adulthood.
The new three year contract awarded to Ansbury Guidance by the county council will enable the most vulnerable young people in Dorset to access information, advice and guidance which will enable them to achieve the best possible long term learning and employment outcomes.
Cllr Deborah Croney, Dorset County Councillor for Education and Skills said:
“This is an exciting time for the county council and Ansbury Guidance. We hope that together we can reach the most vulnerable young people in our society by continuing to work in partnership to meet their needs and remove any barriers to learning.”
The county council has a duty to encourage, enable or assist young people below the age of 19 to participate in education or training. As part of this duty, the county council tracks their participation in order to support and encourage those who are not engaged in any form of education, employment or training to get involved.
Nicola Newman, Chief Executive of Ansbury Guidance said:
“The Ansbury Guidance team is delighted to have secured a new contract with Dorset County Council after a highly competitive European procurement process. Our advisers make a difference every day to the lives of Dorset’s most vulnerable young people and I am very pleased our plans for future work and support can now be realised.
“Dorset County Council has shown a deep commitment to young people with this investment. Our shared aim is to ensure they all reach their full potential regardless of circumstances.”
