Govt sets up careers service

The Gibraltar Government is implementing a new Careers’ and Employment Development Service to provide advice to students and those facing career changes.

The service will be run by the Ministry of Business and Employment in conjunction with the Ministry of Education and is primarily available to persons between the ages of 14 to 19 years.

The Minister for Education, Gilbert Licudi, described the collaboration of the two ministries as “crucial and vital to secure the future of a young person.”

“This new service will undoubtedly prove a valuable source of information and advice to students who may not be clear as to how to proceed at such an early stage in their lives,” said Mr Licudi.

He also noted that this was in conjunction with the career advisory service and the careers fair which is held every two years.

The new service arose following a need for a “more structured approach that will improve the service to give best possible advice.”

Government Officers will visit the schools and provide awareness of the new services being offered.”

The service will take the form of workshops, one-to-one tuition and school and college visits.
