Information and Careers Hub

Week commencing 10 December 2018

Their world is changing

There are new courses and new types of study available, the job market is changing and our children have many choices to make. As a parent or carer it can be hard to keep up and to know how best to support your teenager through their wide-ranging options.

Do you have a child who is aged between 14 and 18?  Are you confused about their choices and options for careers or qualifications? Or do you want some up-to-date information relating to potential choices?

Come and visit us in our information and careers hub.  You will have the opportunity to speak to a qualified Careers Advisor about what the options are for your child and how you can best support them, as well as speaking to members of GROWS staff about the opportunities we have available for your child to enable them to get real life first-hand experiences. We will also have a wide range of guides that you can take away with you.

You are welcome to drop in at any point between 11am and 7pm, or alternatively you can pre-book an appointment using our form. You can come alone or you are welcome to bring your child along with you too.

If you would like to pre-book your slot, please complete the register of interest form, providing us with your details and which date you would like to come to as well as what time you would like to come. The GROWS team will then get back to you to confirm your time.

If you have any further queries please contact us on 01242 714447 or at
