Young people in Calderdale are invited to find out more about the options available after GCSEs, at the annual Get Organised event.
From Monday 12 October, Leeds Beckett University, is hosting a four-day, virtual event, primarily aimed at Calderdale students in Year 11 and their families.
Calderdale is a great place to study, work or set up a business. The Get Organised event brings together local businesses, apprenticeship schemes, schools, colleges and universities to help young people make an informed choice about their future.
Three 20-minute sessions are scheduled on each of the four days, from 4pm onwards. Sessions include guidance and information across different themes including sixth form and colleges; jobs and apprenticeships; and university options. Young people can attend each one or just register for those most relevant to their future plans.
More information, the full event timetable and booking details are available at http://www.getorganisedcalderdale.co.uk/. All sessions are free and there’s no limit to the number of sessions that can be booked. The website also has lots of information about how to make the most of the event, including sample questions and tips about where to go to find further careers advice.
Craig Whittaker MP for Calder Valley, commented:
“I encourage the young people of Calder Valley to attend this virtual event, as it's always proven to be very successful in previous years and may be of use to those students and/ or families that may have concerns surrounding the effect of COVID on their future prospects.
Since the event cannot be held as normal, it seems fitting to stream it online for all who want to watch. The sessions are set to be fun filled and educational, therefore, I would definitely recommend it to all those interested in thinking about their next steps."
