Webinar: Positive Career Choices for Young Adult Carers
This webinar will introduce participants to the new Learning, Work and Wellbeing Toolkit for young adult carers.
The toolkit is designed to enable staff at carers services, learning providers and careers advice services to work with young adult carers, either on a one-to-one basis or in groups, to help them make informed choices about education, training and employment opportunities.
The Learning, Work and Wellbeing Toolkit was co-designed with six carers services and their young adult carers as part of our Positive Career Choices project. Funded by the Department of Health, this two-year project aimed to enable young adult carers, aged 16-25, to achieve the same level of success in education and employment as their peers.
