Changing lives... building futures


Three major work based careers fairs, organised by the Learning and Skills Council for Cambridgeshire, have taken place over the past two weeks across the region. Organised to help young people decide how to train for a worthwhile career, the first event in Peterborough attracted over 800 young people and their parents who had the opportunity to meet with local and national training providers.

All young people throughout Cambridgeshire were invited to attend one of four Choices 2001 events to find out for themselves what opportunities are available through workbased training.

One young person who benefited from the event was Victoria Ward, she said: "Choices has really helped me. I was able to talk to a training provider who explained my options and gave me some really invaluable advice. I now know what I want to do with my life. This kind of event really opens up your mind to the kinds of things you can do with your future."

The Learning and Skills Council for Cambridgeshire with backing from Cambridgeshire Careers Guidance held events in Peterborough, March, St Neots and will be holding one more Choices event on Sunday 29 April at The Moat House Hotel, Barhill from 10 am until 4 pm.

Career areas covered by the exhibition include accounting, agriculture and horticulture, business administration, childcare and education, construction, customer service, engineering, estate agency, hairdressing, health care, hotel and catering, information technology, leisure, printing, retail, road haulage and distribution, tourism and travel.

The Councils Executive Director Stephen Catchpole said: "Choices 2001 is an ideal opportunity for young people to find out how they can make a flying start to their chosen career by following a nationally recognised programme of training while earning a wage or training allowance."

If you are interested in finding out about work based training and Modern Apprenticeships phone the Learning and Skills Council for Cambridgeshire on (01733) 344770.
