Woking students aged between 13 and 19 can take a glimpse into their future this New Year at a Skills and Careers Fair held at H. G. Wells Conference and Events Centre on Wednesday 16 January at 4.30pm - 8pm.
The event, run by Woking Borough Council as part of its Invest in Your Success initiative, and with support from Woking Federation, will allow young people to receive additional information on their future careers, employment and further education options. Those attending can benefit from:
CV writing and interview technique workshops
College and university stalls
Speak to work-based trainers, employers and apprenticeship providers
Jonathan Olaofe, Invest in Your Success Project Manager, said: "The event is a great opportunity for students in years 9 to 13 to get more information on their next step. It can be an uncertain time, and having the chance to meet employers, universities and colleges, work-based trainers and apprenticeship providers can give them a better idea of their careers and employment options."
Invest in Your Success aims to equip young people with the skills and qualities employers are looking for, through a programme of student mentoring and key business-related tasks. Students wishing to gain a better understanding of their options post-16 can attend the fair, whether this is alone or via a visit organised through their schools or other education and training provider.
Students wishing to attend the event can simply turn up on the day, anytime between 4.30pm and 8pm.
Businesses can also get involved in the Invest in Your Success scheme as a mentor, to help develop young people's personal and employability skills. It allows their employees to develop their skill sets, as well as helping the local community. Businesses wishing to be a part of the scheme should contact Jonathan Olaofe on 01483 743019 or email email@example.com
