National Careers Week is a week long celebration (2nd to 7th March) which raises awareness about improving careers education in schools and colleges.
Government evidence shows that this is an area that needs improvement in order to ensure that future generations will benefit from quality, meaningful interactions which help them to understand the links between courses, skills and the pathways they open up.
Today I started my fourth and final seat in my training contract with our Personal Injury department. This is part of my career progression to becoming a qualified solicitor. This has been my ambition since I was 15 and I have gained valuable legal work experience along the way. I am looking forward to my next 6 months in which I will learn how to represent the victims of accidents and how the legal system compensates them.
MW Solicitors supports schools and colleges by giving talks on how to obtain a legal career and what life as a lawyer is like. Joanna Bailey, the Head of Personal Injury gives an annual lecture to Middlesex University on exactly this, whilst last November our departments para legal, Shazad Ali returned to his old school to do this too.
MW Solicitors partners with the award winning social enterprise, Enabling Enterprise, who work with primary schools, secondary schools and businesses to bring the world of work into the classroom through lesson-time projects, challenge days and inspiring visits to businesses. If you (or your school) would like further information on the programme, please contact Enabling Enterprise via their website.
