Employment opportunities for young carers aged 18 to 25

Moving On….Young Carers, Employment Apprenticeships and Transition

February 6th 2013, 10am-3.30pm at Lynton House, Tavistock Square, LONDON

Moving on to the world of work is often a difficult transition for young people. When a young person is a carer, then the barriers to successful employment can be higher. Many young carers have valuable experience they could use to find work in social care, but what are pros and cons of continuing in a caring role? What is the deal for young carers when it comes to apprenticeships? How can young carers best be supported to make the transition from education to work? What options are there for young carers?

Join us in a ‘big conversation’ and hear from our invited speakers from

·         Carers Trust

·         Action for Carers

·         National Apprenticeship Service

·         NIACE

and even more importantly, from a young carer talking about her experiences. We will have a lot of time for discussion too.
