Personal Guidance (Gatsby Benchmark 8)

Year 11  and Year 13 Careers Advice – message from Erroll Blackwood

Given the exceptional challenges facing the country, it is vital that ‘careers and employment ’ advice/support is given to all Year 11 and Year 13 students likely to leave education this summer 2020.  Although there is currently a counter service at Oldbury Council House we will review the need for this service on a weekly basis.

Young people and their parents/carers can still contact Connexions Sandwell online, and staff are available by phone or email – details given below. 

Find us at the One Stop Shop, Oldbury Council House, Freeth Street, Oldbury, B69 3DB. Call us on 0121 569 2955 or Freephone: 0800 358 4800. Alternatively email us at
