A-level students celebrate success

The Isle of Wight Council is congratulating students who have worked hard to achieve their A-level, technical, vocational, and apprenticeship qualifications this year.

These results, published today (Thursday 18 August), are the first post-16 national exams held since 2019. 
 
The council expects to have the full picture of results, achieved by students who sat examinations this year, in early 2023 when the final and validated data is published by the Department for Education.  

Councillor Debbie Andre, Cabinet member for children’s services said: “On behalf of the council and myself, I would like to congratulate the Island’s brilliant students for their hard work and determination.  

“I would also like to extend my thanks to the many wonderful teachers and tutors in our colleges, sixth forms and our training providers who have supported young people as they have worked towards these important next steps in their careers.  

“It is even more impressive knowing that this year’s cohort will not likely have sat a formal public exam before, having been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and national lockdowns. Their resilience is to be admired and will serve them well in the future. Very well done to all.” 

Any young person who needs help or advice about their next options, having received their results, can speak to their school’s careers advisor or contact Island Futures, the Isle of Wight Council’s career service, on (01983) 823888.  

A dedicated post exam support service will be available to call today (Thursday) on (01983) 823888, between 9am and 4pm or at any other time via email island.futures@iow.gov.uk

There is also an extensive range of careers information available online via the council’s Youth Tube site at www.iow.gov.uk/youthtube.

Information on apprenticeships available in each area can be found on the council’s site or at via www.apprenticeships.gov.uk.    

Students who may be feeling uncertain, anxious or stressed about the future as they move on to university, employment or other training can also seek support from Young Minds who will encourage them to look after their mental health and identify when to ask for help.
