Connexions in Birmingham needs to change — have YOUR say!

We need to change from April 2012, because of changes to the law about careers guidance, and because Birmingham City Council needs to save money.
WE WANT YOUR VIEWS on the service that we will provide from April onwards — so please fill in OUR ONLINE QUESTIONNAIRE (it’s quick and anonymous). [Survey ended - link now removed]
The survey closes on Friday 27 January 2012 so please have a look soon. We'll publish the results here and on our website in early April. Thank you!
ADDITIONAL NOTE: a summary report is now available at What you thought about the future of Connexions - 2012 on our website.
