New careers resources help pupils plan for future job opportunities

Jobs for Tomorrow is a series of local resources including lesson plans, films, case studies and job profiles which will both inspire and enable people 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 desire 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.

Funded as part of the Liverpool City Region Deal with Government, the Employment and Skills Board commissioned Greater Merseyside Connexions Partnership to produce the series of careers materials for our key economic growth sectors. This includes the Visitor Economy (tourism and leisure industries), Superport (maritime, logistics and distribution, airport), Low Carbon Sector and the Knowledge Economy which covers growth in advanced manufacturing, financial and professional services, life sciences and creative and digital sectors. (particularly incorporating science, technology, engineering or maths skills within the workforce) The resources are far ranging including information on work as an App Designer, Paralegal, Transport Planner and Biomedical Support Worker.

The materials are aimed to be used by year 7 pupils onwards and into adulthood and they should be useful to professionals working with young people and adults, including teachers and careers advisors.

Richard Else, Operations Director at Jaguar Land Rover 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 our young people and adults prepare for employment. Not only can our residents better plan their career path, but 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 our residents to achieve their career aspirations.”
