Why not focus on your future and upskill ?

Summer 2020 is turning out to be somewhat different from what we were all thinking about a few months, ago but students and parents are encouraged to focus on the future and talk to SERC’s Careers Service before receiving their results later this summer.

Shirley Moore, Senior Careers Officer at SERC said: “The SERC Careers Service is open for business to help with those vital next steps school leavers and parents will want to consider during this extraordinary time.  Our Careers Service is available to prospective SERC students and their parents, as well as everyone living in the local community.

Get some wind in your sails! Don’t get caught up in the Covid-career doldrums… check out courses available at SERC.

“For those students who are considering their post-16 or post-18 options, and thinking of coming to SERC, we are offering virtual appointments between 10am and 4pm (3pm on Friday) from Monday 3 August through to Wednesday 12August.

“Appointments can be conducted via telephone, email or video call through Microsoft Teams, depending on your individual preference.”

You can book an appointment by emailing:


letting SERC know your nearest campus, or by contacting one of the team directly. 

You will find contact details at: www.serc.ac.uk/support/careers-service.

Local parent Lissa Dyer and her daughter Megan, who has applied to come to SERC this September, recently availed of the Careers Service at SERC. Lissa said: “The support my daughter and I received via email and social media has helped us greatly and helped relieve our anxiety – we now have a plan in place for September. Thank you to all for the great support which has been much appreciated.”

Shirley added: “Our Careers staff are available to help you get the information you need to plan ahead and know your options, allowing you to make more effective career decisions. Whatever stage you are at, we can provide you with impartial careers information, advice and guidance to help you make the decisions to get you to where you want to be”. A
