NEW feature for The One Step Foundation's Somerset Skills & Careers Fair 2017 - Thursday 07th Sep 2017


This year marks the fifth anniversary for the Somerset Skills & Careers Fair and we’re delighted to announce a brand new feature.

Away from the main hall in a quieter part of the venue, visitors will find ‘Choices for Life’ organised by Somerset County Council. New for 2017 and designed by young people, this is an exhibit to help vulnerable young people access the information, advice and guidance required to make the best choices in their education and future lives.

Open to all, we anticipate this feature will be particularly relevant for young people who may need support in preparing for adult-life and will include information and advice for parents/carers. There will be a number of themed zones addressing these questions:

  • How can I live more independently?
  • How can I choose my next school or college?
  • How can I find things to do in my spare time?
  • How can I find a job and keep a job?
  • How can I stay safe and healthy?

We’re proud to add another dimension to the Careers Fair, making it even more inclusive for the workforce of tomorrow. Find out more information on this fantastic event here: https://www.onestepfoundation.co.uk/careers-fair/

If you would like any more information about Choices for Life, please contact Claire Merchant Jones CMerchantJones@somerset.gov.uk or Julie Young JAYoung@somerset.gov.uk.

As a reward, our MD Nick has surprised Adriana, Ania and Claudia with a day at Buff Urban Day Spa next month, including a champagne lunch in the hot tub, full body treatments and a blow dry to send them home relaxed and looking amazing (not that they don’t already).
