Careers helping launched for young people in Worcestershire

A new careers helpline has been launched for Worcestershire to help young people understand what their career options are.

Students across Worcestershire have now left school earlier than planned, and with the end of year exams canceled rather than postponed, many students may be unsure of what step to take next.

These students can call the Careers Worcestershire dedicated helpline which has been launched to help young people affected through this period  and help answer any questions that they may have on what is next for them.

The helpline is being run by qualified advisors and they will be able to help to offer advice and support on a range of issues including support in looking for training or education, information on the next steps in sixth form and colleges in Worcestershire, support and information on apprenticeships and apprenticeship applications.

Councillor Marcus Hart, Cabinet Member with Responsibility for Education and Skills, said: “The Coronavirus pandemic has changed the traditional path for the students leaving school this year, but that doesn’t mean the advice and support shouldn’t be available for our parents and students to access.
