From April 2012 onwards, Connexions Birmingham will be changing quite a lot. On our website we have a “Connexions is changing... for young people” page where we try and explain what’s going on and how it will make a difference to people who have used Connexions Birmingham before. We’ll update this page whenever we can add some new or more detailed information so it’s worth checking back there from time to time.
Why is all this happening? Why are you changing things?
There are two reasons:
- The law has changed. From September 2012 it becomes the responsibility of schools to make sure that their pupils get impartial careers information, advice and guidance. Up until now this has been the role of Connexions.
- As part of the City Council, Connexions Birmingham needs to make budget savings for next year (2012-2013).
