As the Career Wales Adviser linked to St Joseph’s RC High School, I will be providing information, advice, and guidance to students in key stage 4 and 5 via a range of digital services until 2021. My role as an adviser is to help young adults explore their ideas, plan their next steps, and develop the skills to deal with the uncertainties ahead due to COVID-19.  

Following the First Minister’s announcement this week regarding the fire-break lockdown in Wales, there has never been a greater need for Careers Wales to have the up-to-date contact details for Key stage 4 and 5 students, these will help Careers Wales keep them up-to-date with relevant information such as sixth form, college courses and apprenticeships.
