GCSE results advice and apprenticeships opportunities available

August 2019

Advisers from Inspira will be on-hand at schools and Inspira centres around the Cumbria on Thursday 22nd of August for GCSE results day.

With thousands of students waiting on these results to secure their futures it can be the case that some do not receive the results they were expecting.

“Young people can receive surprises on results days, some do better than they expected, some maybe not as well. Either scenario can present them with different choices on their future studies. We want to be able to offer impartial advice and guidance at the right time which is why our Advisors will be available in schools, in our centres and available by phone.”

- Sarah Harrington, Director of Operations for Inspira.


Louise Latta, one of the Advisors available at the Carlisle centre on results day, said, “It can be a bit of a shock when you go to collect your results and they are not what you were expecting. People may want to go home and speak to friends and family before looking into the options available to them. Parents often want to be a part of that conversation and that is why we are staying open into the evening.”
