Have you just left school and have no idea what you want to do next? Or maybe you are dreaming of a career and really don’t know where to start?

You can get advice and help by coming along to Evesham Library next month.

The Library will be hosting a job fair and apprenticeship roadshow next month; perfect for all students who have just finished school and looking at their next steps.

The fair will offer residents an opportunity to speak with potential employers, apprenticeship schemes, and to explore work experience and volunteering opportunities across the county.

The event, which is taking place on Friday 6th September, will host a variety of stalls showcasing opportunities and services provided by Adult Learning, Job Club, Libraries, local employers, and the Worcestershire Apprenticeship scheme.

Councillor Marcus Hart, Cabinet Member with Responsibility for Education and Skills said: “We’re very proud of the post 16 options we have to offer here in Worcestershire and of the confidence and extra skills they help people to build around the county.

This event is a real opportunity to allow young people to explore the options available to them after leaving school.  It’s perfectly timed to help those students who will have recently received their exam results and are unsure of the next step they want to take.”

Councillor Lucy Hodgson, Cabinet Member for Communities, said: “This event is one of several that Worcestershire’s libraries have hosted recently to help the county’s young people to make decisions about their future after leaving school. It’s great that there will be a wide range of services that will be showcased at the event, highlighting the wide range of options that are available here in Worcestershire.”

The event will run from 10am-12:30pm and is a free drop in aimed at young people aged 16-24.

However, people of all ages are welcome.
