A CAREERS ADVICE BOOTH will be at Princes Quay Shopping Centre on Wednesday next week (13th January 2010), providing free and impartial jobs and careers advice to people in the local area.
For adults looking for advice, the Learning and Skills Council (LSC)’s travelling Careers Advice booth arrives from 9.30am to 6pm. The booth will be manned by experts from the three agencies that offer information and employment advice in England. Advisers from the Careers Advice Service, nextstep and Jobcentre Plus will be on hand to help passers-by plan their next career move or progress in their career.
The Careers Advice booth will also give people who are currently unemployed the chance to receive face-to-face advice on how to gain new skills to improve their job prospects in the familiar setting of Princes Quay. Those who are unable to visit the Careers Advice booth next week can still get help from the Careers Advice Service by calling 0800 100 900 or visiting www.direct.gov.uk/careersadvice.
The Careers Advice Service provides free, impartial and confidential advice for those interested in learning a new skill; who want to find information on different courses or get further details of the funding options open to them.
