Careers event and workshops aim to inform young people
YOUNGSTERS thinking about career choices have a unique opportunity to get advice and look at their options next month.
Two workshops on November 6 will offer teenagers the chance to hear best selling author and inspirational speaker Des McCabe, followed by a careers exhibition involving over 50 businesses and colleges.
Des is one of the UK's leading experts on training and careers, and is an advisor to several governments around the world.
Des’s talk in Stroud will be held at the South Glos and Stroud College campus at 2pm.
Places for the free event are limited and booking is essential – call 01453 754296 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The careers exhibition – Stroud Ambitions – will be open immediately afterwards, from 4.30pm – 8pm next door at Stratford Park Leisure Centre. Admission is free and there is no need to book.
“Teenagers often don’t know where to start in choosing a career but they are having to make important decisions regarding GCSE and A level subjects," said Les Haines, chairman of Stroud District Local Strategic Partnership.
"These two events offer a great chance for them to find out what’s out there and what sort of qualifications they might need to get into a particular career.”
The events are being organised by Stroud District Council, local schools, South Glos and Stroud College, with sponsorship from the University of Gloucestershire.
