Get learning. Be career confident

As part of its commitment to enabling all people in the region to access and progress through higher education, Sussex Learning Network has set up its Get Career Confident (GCC) project and Learning4Life Sussex website.

GCC provides information, guidance and inspiration to 14 to 19 year-olds, and their parents and teachers, so the young people are able to make informed, confident decisions about their next steps in life.

Learning4Life Sussex brings together trusted, useful website links to help everyone – from school leavers to returners and adult learners – to access learning opportunities whatever their area of interest.
