Special event will offer career help

CAREER inspiration is on offer for young people in Bognor Regis later this month.

 

The FindItOut Centre in the town will be opening its doors from 1.30pm-4.30pm on Tuesday, April 24, for young people and their parents and carers to receive career, money and training advice and be inspired.

 

The session follows the six Arun Skills and Job Fairs held in Bognor Regis and Littlehampton in recent years to help people to get access to training or job opportunities.

 

More recently, though, the organisers at West Sussex County Council realised a need also existed for more specific advice to be available. This has led to the new event being arranged.

 

Cllr Stephen Hillier, the county council’s cabinet member for children and young people, said: “We have already had great interest in the event from nearby schools that will be bringing students to it.

 

“It is specifically aimed at young people who can pop along and find out information on lots of topics including how to get a job, what training is on offer at colleges, building confidence, apprenticeships, emotional support and money advice.”

 

A range of employers in the area, training organisations and support services will be on hand at the event to help with young people’s questions.

 

These will include Outset Youth, Skills Training UK, Making Theatre Gaining Skills, Chichester College, the University of Chichester, UK Harvest, sea cadets and Tag Archery.

 

The town’s FindItOut centre is off Church Lane in Glamis Street in the town centre.
