Students in Year 11 and their families are invited to Calderdale Council’s Get Organised event, to find out more about the options available after finishing GCSEs in 2020.
On Thursday 10 October, young people and their families are encouraged to drop in to the Shay Stadium in Halifax between 3.30pm and 7.30pm for the chance to speak with colleges, sixth forms, universities and work-based training providers from across the region.
There’ll be lots of information and advice available, including talks from C&K Careers, university, college and apprenticeship providers which will be repeated throughout the evening. There will also be copies of the C&K Careers ‘Get Organised’ guide available, packed full of up to date information on local post 16 options.
Calderdale Council’s Cabinet Member for Children and Young People’s Services, Cllr Adam Wilkinson, said:
“This is a really popular event which acts as a ‘one stop shop’ for young people considering their options following GCSEs.
“With advice about further education routes, apprenticeship offers and work-based training options, this event will help young people to make an informed decision about their future path.”
There’s no need to book a place at the event, but visitors are advised that it can be busy between 5pm and 6.30pm. The car park at the Shay is also ‘pay and display’, so remember to bring change for parking if required.
