UNISON PETITION TO STOP THE PROPOSED CUTS TO CONNEXIONS SERVICES IN CROYDON

From April 2011 if there are cuts to Connexions in Croydon then this will affect you (or your son or daughter).  You’ll find it harder to:

  • Get help in looking for work or training
  • Get advice about going to university or finding the right college course.
  • Find out about services in your area
  • Find access to free internet and printing
  • Find someone to talk through your ideas and options

There will also be far fewer Personal Advisers in your school or college to help you. There might not even be one there. Who is going to help you get a job? Or an apprenticeship?

In 2012 university tuition fees can rise to £9,000.00 a year. This year's Year 12s will be the first to face such costs. Who is going to help you (or them) work out whether you should go or not? CONNEXIONS is IMPARTIAL and gives INDEPENDENT and FREE advice. IF WE ARE CUT, YOU'LL GET A POORER SERVICE AND LESS HELP.This is what WE believe. WE are here to help every single young person.

  If you don’t want these cuts to happen, please sign our petition.

You will have your own view about what should happen to the help that Croydon Council gives young people. So to be fair, as well as the petition below, we have included two links  to Croydon Council's website for their consultation. These are on the right hand side under 'Links'.

 Thank you from the UNISON members in Connexions Croydon! Don't forget to sign below and, if you like, to add a comment!

This one is for the survey. Please read it carefully and be honest. http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/shapingup 

Connexions is mentioned once, in Question 8. After that Connexions is called 'Information, Advice and Guidance' or 'IAG'.
