National Careers Week is a celebration of Career Guidance and Opportunities across the UK.
National Careers Week 2015, sponsored by LifeSkills Barclays, took place on 2nd March till 6th March.
Employability Town has contributed to the week by being one of the regional Ambassadors!
National Careers Week is a celebration of careers guidance and free resources in education across the UK. The aim is to provide a focus for careers guidance activity at an important stage in the academic calendar to help support young people leaving education.
As one of the regional Ambassadors of National Careers Week 2015 across Berkshire & surrounding counties, Employability Town supported a variety of organisations that were working to boost young people’s professional potential throughout the week.
National Careers Week is such an important event as it focuses the attention of young people on what happens after they finish full time education. At Employability Town we passionately support helping young people to get the best start in their career and so we felt that it was essential to get involved in NCW 2015 as much as possible.

Our Managing Director Klaudia Mitura visited two radio stations in Southampton; 103.9 Voice FM and Unity Community 101 Community Radio. These two shows on “how to become super employable” were talking about the important of soft business skills, enterprise skills, and how young people can develop these.
