Services for Young People held its 10th annual conference for careers leaders across Hertfordshire on 30 June. For the first time the conference was held virtually, enabling more than 120 delegates to attend.

IAG & WRL Conference 2021

This year the focus of our IAG & WRL Conference was 'careers in a changing world', with keynote speaker Professor Tristram Hooley giving an overview of the latest national policy updates, including the impact of the pandemic on the future job market. Tristram went on to also detail the newly revamped CDi Framework which Services for Young People will offer some free consultancy support to schools for in Autumn 2021.

Those who attended virtually ranged from secondary school careers leaders and deputy heads, to recruitment managers from local employers and employment and training advisers. They also had an opportunity to take part in a range of workshops which provided practical help and guidance for providing effective and engaging careers guidance in schools and other settings and dealing with new challenges.

The event was run by Services for Young People (SfYP) in partnership with the Careers & Enterprise Company and the Hertfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership.
