Inspiring Your Future

Two great events are being held on the Isle of Wight in March which are designed to promote the career opportunities open to young people and to provide parents with up to date information so they can help support their children when it’s time to make a decision about their future career paths.

During NATIONAL CAREERS WEEK, the National Careers Service in partnership with the Chamber of Commerce, Island Training providers and schools are staging an event targeting Parents of Years 10 and 11 pupils.

The FREE event takes place on Thursday 10 March between 5.30pm – 8.00pm and is being held at the Isle of Wight College in Newport.

Research regularly highlights parents as a major influence on young people’s career decisions, but it can be difficult to keep up-to-date with today’s rapidly changing workplace and the many new career opportunities becoming available. You will have the opportunity to find out about the latest developments in the world of work in order to better support your children’s career choices.

At the event you can:

  • Attend a rolling presentation bringing you up to date with career resources, apprenticeships and the latest forecast trends
  • Speak to local employers and find out for yourself what they are looking for in young people
  • Speak informally to qualified careers advisers and school careers co-ordinators

The following week NATIONAL APPRENTICESHIP WEEK take place.

On Thursday 17 March between 1.00pm – 7.00pm at Lord Louis Library, Newport it’s the turn of Young People to find out all you need to know about Apprenticeships and Traineeships from all of the Island’s Training Providers.

This event is suitable for those looking for opportunities right now and for those leaving education this year. Parents and Carers are most welcome! Alongside FREE information and guidance, you can apply for Apprenticeships on the day and discuss how we can help you start or progress your career.
