What do you want to be when you grow up – Professions Week, 20th – 24th October

Professions Week was launched in 2013 to focus on helping increase interest in young people (14-19) in becoming a professional, and increase awareness of the routes and resources available to becoming a professional.

‘Professions’ are a vocation founded on specialised high-level educational training, which provide responsible and professionally independent services in the interest of the client and the public (such as bookkeeping, payroll, accountancy, human resources, legal services).  CIPD research shows being a member of a professional body increases careers prospect

Professions Week was launched because Careers Guidance in schools was not working well enough. Ofsted reported in September 2013 that 3/4 of schools were not implementing their duty to provide effective impartial careers advice.

If you have a son or daughter aged 14 – 19 look out for Profession Week Events at schools and colleges near you.  Or go to for more information.
