It’s National Careers Week 1st-5th March

It’s National Careers Week 1st-5th March

National Careers Week 2021 runs from 1st-5th March and is a week dedicated to promoting careers guidance across the UK.

This is an opportunity to think about different career opportunities and a chance to explore how effective choices can be made about your future.

Bury College has created a short video presentation featuring one of Tottington’s former students designed to raise aspirations. We hope this will encourage you to continue to put the effort in now in order to have a successful future.

Creative Careers Week, an initiative run by Creative and Cultural Skills, is running alongside National Careers Week.

The Bury Local Cultural Education Partnership (LCEP) reached out to local artists and professionals to share insight on their journey in creative careers and how taking part in creativity from a young age supported them to get where they are now.

This series of short videos shares real life stories from local people.
