WE4 Employability

Health Sector workshop for pupils - 13 November

Health is a sector with significant skills shortages in the county so we are keen to enable young people and teachers to find out about the careers on offer.  Therefore, we are funding a half-day workshop introducing a range of occupations to pupils in a fun, interactive way.

The workshop will take place in both the morning and afternoon at the Nuneaton Academy on 13 November.  It will be repeated in the south of the county later in the year or in early 2020. 

Full details have been sent to Careers Leaders, however if your school has not received the invitation or you would like more details you can contact glennrobinson@warwickshire.gov.uk
