Over 200 people, representing education, employment and business across the Liverpool City Region, will be attending the launch of Jobs for Tomorrow on 12 March at Aintree Racecourse.
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 their career path and progression.
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 cover the economic growth sectors in the region including the Visitor Economy, Knowledge Economy (particularly science, technology, engineering or maths skills within the workforce), SUPERPORT (maritime, logistics, airport) and Low Carbon. The support videos and job profiles range from App Designers and Heating Engineers to Nurses and Biomedical Support Workers.
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.
