A service helping young people plan potential careers has been rewarded for its work.

North Tyneside Youth and Connexions Service received the prestigious Unionlearn Quality Award for its careers information and advice.

The award is given to organisations who work with trade unions to demonstrate unions and union leaders are considered in the design and delivery of courses, with services having to undergo a rigorous assessment process.

Martin Lightfoot, senior manager at the service, said: “Our qualified and experienced staff are available to help people plan career transitions. We want to work with trade unions and community groups to make sure our expertise is used by people who need the service the most.”
