Working from a Games Console

Here is a quick video, showing how you can access the work using an Xbox or Playstation gaming console. Whilst the video shows a keyborad attached, it is possible to access the work just using a game controller. Any USB wired Keyboard should work and most wireless keyboards will work. NB: A mouse will not work with either Games console whilst browsing the internet, but the controller thumbsticks can be used.

Dear colleague,

Further to my previous email, would it be possible to distribute this email and survey link to parents and pupils in your school please?:

Dear Pupil/Parent/Carer,

This year we are developing our new strategic vision which will take us beyond Changing Lives and shape the direction of Careers Wales until 2026. We know that the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic is going to be felt for some time to come, but it is clear that for both young people and adults, the need for an independent, all-age careers guidance service for Wales will be critical in supporting the economic recovery.

It is therefore extremely important that we engage with our customers and stakeholders to develop this new vision. To help us develop our vision we would be grateful if you could complete the survey at:

Parents/carers: https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/IMQ2MYParents/

Many thanks

Nikki Lawrence, Chief Executive, Careers Wales
