Parent-Careers meeting

We would like to invite you and your son/daughter to attend a virtual individual Parent-Careers meeting in June/July at a date/time to suit you.

These free meetings are a valuable chance to meet with an impartial Careers professional to discuss your child’s next steps. During the meeting your child will receive high quality independent careers advice and guidance which will enable them to take up work, training, an apprenticeship or a college/Sixth Form course.

Email with your name, telephone number, child’s name and school and we will contact you to book your appointment.

Ready Steady Careers

Join us for Ready Steady Careers.

These are two virtual events that will cover topics including CV writing, application forms, virtual interviews and how young people can find and keep a job.

There will be videos, presentations and live chat with Connexions Sandwell Personal Advisers.

The first will run on Thursday 15 July and the second on Thursday 29 July.

They will run for one hour – 6pm – 7pm.
