Slice of Advice

Herefordshire teenagers will soon be able to take advantage of careers, educational advice and guidance at a month long series of drop in sessions.

Cake @ The Common Room brings careers, advice, knowledge, enthusiasm and a free slice of cake to young people at a time when they may be reflecting and making decisions about their current education or training provision.

These decisions can often be difficult to make but with the right information and support informed choices with a positive outcome can be made.

From Wednesday January 14th until Wednesday February 18th 2015 Herefordshire Council will be working in partnership with The Common Room to provide Cake @ The Common Room. These informal drop-in sessions are aimed at young people and their parents or carers who have questions around education and training.

The partnership sees volunteers from The Common Room, on Commercial Road, Hereford (next to the Baptist Church) working with staff from Herefordshire Council and local colleges to provide support and sign posting to young people, their parents and carers, about their options whether that be post 16 college applications, year 9 choices or even where to go after college.

The sessions will run from 12.30 – 4.30pm and are open to young people, parents, grandparents and carers or anyone who has a query about education or training choices
