Youth Conference: Curriculum for Life

Posted by Jacob Wrenn on November 15, 2018 · 1 min read

Our recent consultation of Surrey Heath young people found that they wanted better preparation for life after school. We have created this event to inform young people in Surrey Heath about the different paths they can take, such as studying at university and apprenticeships; how to be more employable; and how to look after your wellbeing at the same time.

The event is designed to be accessible for all young people interested in the topic.

The event will run from 1:30pm - 4:30pm on 22nd January.
