Young Adult Carers
Figures released in May 2013, from the 2011 census, show that there has been a 25% increase in the number of young adult carers, aged 16-25. Research conducted by NIACE and others, and widespread anecdotal evidence shows that young adult carers are far more likely to be NEET (not in education, employment or training) than their peers, and that they experience a range of difficulties and disadvantage, including poverty, isolation, physical and mental health difficulties which have consequences for them, and their families, throughout their lives.
There are two careers advisers from C&K Careers working in college: Elaine Walker and Renuka Mistry. Our priorities are to work with full time learners under and over 20 offering information, advice and guidance and by doing so improve college retention and achievement. During the year we target learners on courses at level 2 and below and will see level 3 students by self or tutor referral. Elaine is the 16-18 Careers advisor wheres Renuka is the 19+ Careers Advisor.
For students who will be seeking employment or an apprenticeship we can offer help with producing or updating a CV, job applications and interview preparation, either individually or in groups.
We are part of the Student Services team based on A floor in Advice and Guidance (A19). Elaine works in college 3 days a week and Renuka works in college 1 day a week. Our extension is 9316 and our e mail addresses are email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
