Adult Careers Event in High Wycombe
20th Feb 2014
Connexions Buckinghamshire, part of the Adviza Group, held a drop-in careers event for adults on Saturday 22nd February at their centre in High Wycombe. The event provided a chance for adults to chat to a qualified and impartial careers adviser about their career ideas. Our advisers saw adults ranging from 20 to 64 years old, including two wanting to get their lives back on track after housing and other social issues, and a young woman trying to set up her own business. All were offered follow-up appointments to go into further detail and receive confidential guidance.
Funded by the European Social Fund, our adult careers services are run in partnership with the National Careers Service and are for those aged 20+ looking for support to move forward in their careers. Appointments are free and are available at the Connexions Buckinghamshire Centres in High Wycombe and Aylesbury. Adults can receive support with:
- Deciding what kind of job they want to do
- Changing careers
- Finding a college or distance learning course (full and part time)
- Identifying their skills and which jobs would suit them
- Writing a CV, cover letter or application form
- Interview skills
- Re-sitting GCSEs or studying subjects from introductory through to degree level
