City : Welcome Station : About Elevate Me
Welcome to Elevate Me, the first stop for all your employment, training and education information in the Reading area.
Confusing. Frustrating. Depressing. These are just some of the feelings you might be experiencing as a young person trying to find the right opportunity in employment, training or education.
It’s a difficult journey at the best of times, but even more so today when the economy is still in recovery and the world of work is changing rapidly.
That’s why we have come together to try to make that journey easier for you to navigate. Local colleges, the Council, businesses, training providers, support agencies – we’ve all pooled our knowledge and networks to give you information at your fingertips so that you can find out:
- Where to get help to build the skills you need
- What opportunities there are for work experience and volunteering
- How to make the most of your abilities when applying for jobs
- How to deal with benefits and finance
- What apprenticeships and traineeships can offer
- How a mentor might be able to help you along the way
It’s all right here, in one place. Our aim is for Elevate Me to be the SatNav that guides you to your destination, whatever journey you’re on. If you need further support you will find the Elevate team based at Reading Library, Abbey Square, Reading, who will be happy to help.
