Monday 14th May saw the start of St Helens Wellbeing Week where Starting Point advisers were on hand to meet with members of the public and tell them about the new services they will provide as part of their delivery of the government’s National Careers Service.
As Pauline Devine, Director of Employment Services at Starting Point, explains, the event was a great success.
“The Wellbeing Week is a great initiative and we would like to thank The Millennium Centre for allowing us to be a part of the week’s proceedings alongside the other partner organisations.
“As a result of this collaboration we were able to highlight the services available as part of the National Careers Service to a large number of local people in a short period.
“Being out of work can often have a detrimental effect on people’s wellbeing, so it was encouraging so see so many people come to visit us at our offices on Hardshaw Street for the first time, to talk with advisers about how we could support them in their efforts to return to employment”.
The National Careers Service launched across England on 5 April 2012, providing free and impartial careers advice service for adults and young people (aged 13 and over).
Starting Point will be offering face-to-face consultations to anyone looking for work with their highly qualified and experienced guidance advisers, both from their town centre offices on Hardshaw Street and a wide range of community bases across the Borough
The National Careers Service is run by the Skills Funding Agency with a range of delivery partners across England.
