Nuneaton to host National Careers Week celebration

Published on Monday, 7th March 2016

Nuneaton has been chosen alongside cities such as London & Manchester to host the National Careers Week Bus tour, offering support & guidance on Apprenticeships, Jobs & Skills on Friday 11th March

National Careers Week

The bus will be in Harefield Road, Nuneaton Town Centre between 09:00 and 16:30.

The highly successful National Careers Week, a celebration of Careers and the diversity of jobs available to people, has been hugely effective in previous years for both employers and educators and Nuneaton has been offered the opportunity to host the Careers Bus to enable Residents and students to boost aspirations. 

Guidance and support will be offered by Apprenticeship and Enterprise specialists from RBS along with National Careers Service staff amongst others.

The ethos of the week is to promote as much quality and diverse Careers information as possible across the UK to get students thinking about career and training options they may not have considered. With over 1,600 secondary schools and academies, 300+ FE colleges and over 90 Universities taking part around the UK, NCW has become the biggest week in the Careers calendar.

"Young people need to be inspired about the opportunities available to them and feel motivated to succeed in life and work. It is crucial they have all the information and advice they can get on the many options open to them once they leave full-time education. 

By hosting the National Careers Week Careers Bus in Nuneaton Town Centre, I hope that all residents will attend to get the best advice from trained professionals to boost their aspirations, as well as to help young people to achieve their career ambitions."

Cllr Danny Aldington, portfolio holder for Planning and Development
