Learning and Work Institute is running four free events for to launch the new Learning, Work and Wellbeing Toolkit.
The toolkit is designed to enable staff at carers services to work with young adult carers, either on a one-to-one basis or in groups, to help them explore their options in learning and work, make informed choices about education, training and employment opportunities, and clarify and achieve their career ambitions.
Although the toolkit is aimed at carers services, any staff who support young adult carers to make decisions about education and work may find it useful and are welcome to attend the workshops.
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.
Each of the workshops will run from 10am to 15:30pm. Please register to book your place for one of the following workshops:
