We are excited to tell you about Career Share: a new campaign to encourage parents and carers across Sussex to engage with and support their school’s careers activities.

cs-thumbDid you know that parents and carers are the biggest influencers on young people’s future aspirations?

cs-thumbDid you know that conversations about careers can have a positive impact on grades, motivation to study and attitude to success?

cs-thumbDid you know by sharing stories about your career and life path parents and carers can make a positive impact on the lives of young people?


We have put together a suite of materials to support schools to engage with their parents and carers so students across the county can benefit from the knowledge, experience and networks parents and carers offer.

Career Share is a collaboration between East Sussex Careers Hub, Coast to Capital Careers Hub and the Uni Connect programme Get Career Confident.


Parents and Carers

If you are a parent or carer in Sussex get in touch with your child’s school to make sure they are aware of the campaign and don’t forget to follow Get Career Confident on our dedicated parent/carer Facebook page @Get-Career-Confident.
