Paving The Way – Virtual Careers Festival

19 May 2020 - 22 May 2020


As part of our commitment to staying connected while we’re temporarily closed, West Cheshire Museums is taking part in a Cheshire-wide virtual careers festival for young people.

The festival is for young people in Years 10-13 and will give you the opportunity to engage with employers from a range of industries in Cheshire. There’ll be career and employment forums, a live chat facility so you can ask questions directly to employers throughout the festival, as well as challenges to take part in and competition prizes to win.

Some of our museum staff will be appearing in a special online programme giving advice on career routes into the museum and heritage sector, available on the Learn Live website from Thursday 21 May. There are also more useful pieces of careers advice in the staff interviews below, where we talk about our jobs and careers and how we ended up at West Cheshire Museums!
