On Monday 6th March UTC@MediaCityUK was hand picked as the venue to launch National Careers Week in the North West!
We welcomed some of our key partners in employment and encouraged our students to attend the event to network and meet people from all sorts of different companies…
We had guests from creative and digital organisations like mobile gaming company BlueBeck, and house hold names like Barclays.
We welcomed local universities like the Uni of Salford and apprenticeship providers like Juice Academy.
And we couldn’t forget the small and growing tech companies like Canddi to large creative design agencies like Studio Liddell.
No matter what the students were into we offered them something, and we are proud to work with National Careers Week to bridge the gap between education and employers.
National Careers Week (NCW) 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.
Careers Week encourages education providers like UTC Media City to bring together students, local employers and advisers through careers events and activities. Which is why we were over the moon to host this event for them!
At a time of high youth unemployment there has never been a bigger need for careers guidance to be promoted and celebrated in education.
National Careers Week is the platform to advise and inspire our next generation as they enter the world of work.
We are very proud to have been picked by them to LAUNCH the North West chapter of #NCW2017.
