We are pleased to support Careers Wales new website

"It's been a tough few weeks for us all and at Careers Wales we've been working hard to make sure we can still offer our vital career services digitally and over the phone to our many customers. I'm pleased to say, we have risen to the challenge and in addition to being available over the phone, via email, webchat and video we are launching some new services over the next couple of weeks."

For young people and their parents/guardians:

  • We have recently launched our new Wales-wide live chat with expert career advisers. This service is available Monday to Friday and is available for young people in schools and colleges, parents/guardians and those children who are normally home-schooled. It's an opportunity for them to discuss any concerns they have about the next steps and their future options.
  • We are in the process of developing our home-schooling resources. These are due to go live around Easter and will include a series of sector-specific webinars and lesson plans available to watch and download from our website.

To help adults with their employability needs, we are promoting vacancies on behalf of our partners and ensuring we are communicating the redundancy support we can provide to customers during this difficult time.

Over the coming weeks and months, we will be continuing to review and adapt our service delivery to ensure those who need our services can access them and get the support they need.

Please keep visiting our website and our social media channels for the latest information about accessing our services.
