Students should be proud of their efforts as they receive their GCSE results across Worcestershire today.
That is the message from Councillor Marcus Hart, Worcestershire County Council Cabinet Member for Education and Skills, who praised the hard work of students and school staff.
Students across the county have faced a disrupted year due to the pandemic and were receiving grades awarded by teachers after being unable to sit exams.
Councillor Hart said: “Congratulations to all of our Worcestershire students on their GCSE results during this extraordinary school year.
“This has been a difficult situation for students and school staff alike yet you should all be incredibly proud of your achievements.
“Remember there is careers advice and support available to help you shape your future.”
Whether you are still unsure about your options or looking forward to starting a new phase of education or training over the next weeks, the County Council is sharing advice and guidance for those that may need it.
Careers Worcs is running a webinar following exam results day for students who have not received the grades they were expecting, or for those who are still unsure of the pathway they would like to take in September.
The webinar will inform students of all their options with all the information needed to decide on their next steps.
The webinar is on Monday 24th August from 11am to 12pm.
