New Year’s resolutions are a great way to start the year, and picking up the phone to talk to an adviser from The Careers Advice Service is a simple step to improving the quality of your life.

Many people may feel that their English is holding them back from day to day activities; such as visiting the doctor, filling out forms, or even using the qualifications they may have gained back home for a job in the UK. The Careers Advice Service is on hand with bilingual advisers to talk through people’s options in their own language.
The Careers Advice Service also offers information on how to get help with childcare while you are studying, and any possible funding you may be entitled to whilst you are learning. Perhaps you are interested in male or female only courses, or prefer to study in the evening rather than the daytime. Why not ring The Careers Advice Service in confidence today? They’ll help find the right course for you.
Shahina Begum, an adviser at The Careers Advice Service says: “We have had a good number of people from the different communities calling The Careers Advice Service. We receive so many different types of calls every day, from a wide range of people. We can help them find an English course to start with, so that they have the confidence to then go on and do a further course to enable them to pursue better jobs. It’s very satisfying to know that every day I am able to help someone make a better life for themselves here in the UK.”
Rod Chambers, Head of Advice for The Careers Advice Service says: “There is no better time to pick up the phone than at the start of a new year. The Careers Advice Service is here to help you take the first steps in making a change in your personal, professional and academic life.”
