As National Careers Week is about raising the profile of careers advice and guidance and showing young people the range of opportunities available to them, we have decided to share a daily career profile from a CASCAiD team member for the whole of National Careers Week.
Through our programs we aim to provide insight into hundreds of careers. Therefore, we thought by interviewing some of our staff and asking how they got into their current career, what their educational background is and what advice they would give to young people who want to enter their profession. It provides another resource for young people to help them find out more about their options and plan their future.
Our career interviews show young people how there are a variety of entry routes into each career. Some people have known what they wanted to do since primary school whereas others may have changed professions several times. Real life career profiles, with information on their education and career background, provide real insight and can motivate young people to raise their aspirations and set their career aims high.
We will be tweeting our career profiles daily throughout National Careers Week so follow CASCAiD for the latest updates.
