AS STUDENTS received their exam results, Worcestershire County Council and Careers Worcs are offering them support in taking their next step.
In partnership with the Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership. the authority is hosting events in person and virtually to help talk through options post A level, GCSE and BTEC.
Careers Clinics will be touring the county with dates in Redditch, Bromsgrove, Malvern and Worcester.
Free webinars will also be held on August 17 and 19 from 3pm to 4pm on both days.
Attendees will be talked through their choices whether they have not got their first option or have not yet decided what they want to do next.
The in-person sessions will be at Bromsgrove Library and Redditch Library from 10am to midday on August 25.
The Malvern one will be at Malvern Library from 10am to midday on September 1.
Coun Marc Bayliss, Worcestershire County Council’s cabinet member with responsibility for Economy and Skills, said, “Receiving exam results is a key milestone but knowing what to do next after your exam results can feel overwhelming.
“In Worcestershire we are lucky enough to have many resources available through Careers Worcs to help you consider the options available to you, whether you received the results you were expecting or not.
“The Careers Worcs events are an excellent way for young people to consider different career paths and figure out the most successful path for them.”
Gary Woodman, Chief Executive of Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership, said: “During this time it is important for young people to know there is support on offer to help them decide their next steps.
“The Careers Worcestershire team are providing essential webinars and clinics across the county to highlight all the possible options for as many people as possible.”
He urged any young people or those who know a young person to be aware of this and other support available through the Skills4Worcestershire website.
