On GCSE results day 2018, Cllr Megan Swift, Calderdale Council’s Cabinet Member for Children and Young People’s Services, said:
“Well done to everyone receiving their GCSE results. I know how much hard work and commitment young people have put into their studies, and the amount of support that staff and families have given. Talent is one of the things that makes our borough special, and building on this is a key part of the ‘Vision2024’ for Calderdale.
“If you need some advice and support following your results, C&K Careers are available to talk through your choices – head to https://ckcareersonline.org.uk/(external link) We know it can be a stressful time – Stairways has produced a short video to help spread some positive messages: https://youtu.be/ffVaXHeV710(external link)
“Whatever your future plans, we want you to know that there are lots of options out there. For example, you can get started on your career with an apprenticeship – a great way to get hands-on experience and earn while you learn. There are opportunities within the Council and across Calderdale. Visit www.getingofar.gov.uk(external link) to find out more about apprenticeships.”
