"Overall our students found the CV workshop and Mock Interview Skills event to be of immense value and very positive. Our student evaluations indicated how useful they found these opportunities; in particular our Business Studies students will be able to use their experiences to contribute to the curriculum. Some of our students were able to make such a significant impression on our local employer volunteers that they have the potential offer of future work experience, and even the possibility of employment."
Mike Kurylec, Colonel Frank Seely.

The National Careers Services, Careers Inspiration

Across Nottinghamshire, the National Careers Service delivers a free independent and impartial service called Careers Inspiration. The purpose of Careers Inspiration is to provide information and guidance to schools to make them aware of the range of services that are available to them to inspire young people in making career decisions and preparing them for the world of work.

Modern careers guidance is now as much about inspiration and aspiration as it is about advice. Sustained and varied contacts with employer networks, FE colleges, higher education institutions, mentors, coaches and alumni can motivate pupils to think beyond their immediate experiences and encourage them to consider a broader and more ambitious range of future education and career options.

We are keen to work with your school to complement activities you currently offer to help your students by brokering relationships with and between schools, colleges, local communities and employers to help young people benefit from first-hand experience of work and the opportunities available in the local labour market. We can provide access to:

  • Labour market information
  • Help to access careers service providers
  • Links with employers
  • Newsletters
  • Resources and lesson plans

"This taught me some further techniques and what to add to my CV."
Year 10 student, Colonel Frank Seely.
