Oxfordshire County Council has a duty to check in with all young people aged 16 and 17 in September, to check that they have received a suitable offer of learning, and offer support if they have not. This is so everyone gets the best learning opportunities, finds out about local opportunities, events and activities, and can get support quickly if they need it.
For most young people, we are updated by your school, college or training provider. But every year we need to contact some people directly, by email, text or sending out a letter. If you've recently received a letter like the one above, and not responded yet, please take a moment to update us:
- If you are in education, training or employment please let us know what you are doing so we can update your records
- If you are not in education, employment or training contact us as soon as possible for information and support.
