STUDENTS who are getting their exam results this summer can get education or career advice at special Oldbury sessions with experts.

Thousands of students will be getting their A level and GCSE results this summer, with A level results out on Thursday, August 17, and GCSE results being released on Thursday, August 24.

Sandwell Council’s Connexions team are running an exam results service on weekdays at the Council House between 10am and 4pm from August 17 until August 31.

Careers advisers will have plenty of advice on a variety of options including apprenticeships, traineeships, jobs, college courses as well as advice on the university clearing process and help with CVs and interview skills.

The council’s cabinet member for children services, Councillor Simon Hackett, said: “We know getting exam results can be a bit of an anxious time for students, parents and carers alike, especially if you don’t get the results you are expecting.

“This exam results service is designed to give Sandwell’s young people the best possible start to their careers. With so many options available it’s important to get independent professional advice and guidance.”

Parents and carers are welcome to attend the advice sessions with their child. To book an appointment, or to speak to a careers adviser, call 0121 569 2955.
