On a grey and drizzly Monday evening it seemed that quite a few people in Victoria Library were having doubts about their careers.
Cheryl King was running a workshop entitled ‘Change your career, Change your life’, and with 28 attendees, the events room was full to the brim with people anxious to escape that Monday morning feeling. With a strong message of taking action the workshop proved popular with the crowd.
Cheryl will be holding the workshop again at Maida Vale Library on 28 November and at Westminster Reference Library on 14 December, for those people who missed the talk at Victoria Library.
Westminster Libraries holds many, many events throughout the year, quite a few of which have a business or career focus – keep an eye on our News & events page and/or follow us on Twitter to get the latest on forthcoming events.
The new academic year has started and the Learning Centre at Church Street Library is buzzing with activities.
Church Street residents have been waiting eagerly for the Learning Centre to start running classes for adult learners. It’s all happening now and the most popular activities are Basic Computer courses, English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) and the Bengali Reading Group. There are five Basic Computer courses running at the moment and they are all full!
The facilities are great as the new Learning Centre has 14 computers and a SmartBoard which is proving very popular with the teachers.
CV and employment surgeries run four times a week where local residents can get help with CVs, application forms and preparation for job interviews. Jobseekers can also come to these sessions to use a computer for 2 hours, for free, to search for jobs and to work on their CVs.
As the popularity of the courses are growing (as is the waiting list in the library) make sure you register your interest early if you want to join any of the activities. Just speak to a member of staff in the library to find out how you can join.
