Tomorrow, Inspira will be running their annual Careers Convention at the National College for Nuclear in Workington between 4pm and 7.30pm.
Over 1500 Year 11 young people and their parents have been invited to attend the event to find out what local providers have to offer them at the end of year 11 and beyond.
More than 40 organisations; local 6th forms, FE colleges, apprenticeship providers and employers will be on hand to speak to the parents and young people. While the National College for Nuclear also invites attendees to visit their new virtual reality suite that they have installed to enhance learning on their courses.
Deborah Naylor, Inspira’s Area Operations Manager said ‘this is an excellent opportunity for young people and their parents to speak to representatives first-hand about what is on offer to them in the local area. Many parents as well as young people can become anxious about their transition into post 16 learning and we hope that events like this can alleviate this worry. Feedback from these events is consistently powerful and we are very grateful to all the delegates who continue to support this event.
Representatives from the National Citizen Service will also be on hand to discuss and enrol young people onto the Summer 2020 programme, and Inspira staff will available throughout the evening to offer advice to young people. We can also offer careers information advice and guidance to adults.
This year the event has been kindly sponsored by Hello Future and the National College for Nuclear.
