Over 250 people attended the launch of Jobs for Tomorrow last week.
The representatives from education, employment and business found out about a range of innovative materials to help residents better plan their career path and progression, and how to access them.
Jobs for Tomorrow is a series of lesson plans, videos, job profiles and case studies which will both inspire and enable local residents across the Liverpool City Region to better plan how to get their chosen career.
The work forms part of the Liverpool City Region’s and Government’s priority for more informed and empowered learner choices, supported by the most up-to-date labour market and careers information, but accessible for school children, undergraduates and jobseekers to see opportunities and pursue them.
The materials can be used from Year 7 pupils onwards and into adulthood and they will be used by professionals working with young people and adults, including teachers and careers advisors.
Richard Else, Operations Director at Jaguar Land Rover Halewood and Chair of the Liverpool City Region Employment and Skills Board, said “This is just one of a range of initiatives we are introducing to help young people and adults prepare for employment. Employers have played a key part in developing the materials to ensure potential employees are aware of the skills employers are looking for. Through the materials, we are supporting young people and adults to plan their career path and achieve their career aspirations.”
The materials have been funded as part of the Liverpool City Region Deal with Government. The Liverpool City Region Employment and Skills Board commissioned Greater Merseyside Connexions Partnership to produce the series of careers materials for our key economic growth sectors.
The materials will be hosted on a number of websites including www.connexionslive.com/jobsfortomorrow.aspx
