New digital magazine launched to connect local people with jobs, apprenticeships, careers and learning

A brand-new digital magazine to connect local people with careers help, skills workshops, and lifelong learning has been launched. It will accompany the Cornwall Opportunities website, the all-ages hub highlighting careers, apprenticeships and training opportunities within Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. 

The Cornwall Opportunities website is already packed full of useful tools and resources for those looking to kickstart or change careers, apply for apprenticeships or access further learning.

Now, the brand-new digital magazine will accompany the online portal as an invaluable resource to local people that can be shared far and wide. 

Each issue will feature case studies on what it’s like to work in some of Cornwall’s biggest industries, with the first issue of the magazine highlighting Green and Digital Skills careers. Readers can also expect to find helpful information on apprenticeships, lifelong learning courses and skills bootcamps.  

Each issue will also feature a spotlight on local education providers, with the first edition including an introduction to Cornwall College and what it offers, while Truro & Penwith College shares guidance on the future of adult learning in Cornwall.  

Cornwall Council portfolio holder for economy, Louis Gardner, said:

“I’m sure this will be an invaluable resource that helps connect our residents with a wealth of opportunities. 

“Cornwall has a diverse and thriving economy, characterised by a blend of traditional industries, and emerging sectors, making it an exciting and dynamic place to live and work. The Cornwall Opportunities magazine and website are an important source of information for our residents, helping to highlight the wide range of jobs and career pathways available in the Duchy.” 

Cornwall Opportunities has a huge range of information and tools for young people, adults, employers, teachers, parents, and local learning providers. A key feature is a searchable database of hundreds of jobs, apprenticeships, courses and more, across a wide range of industries, all in one place. 

Cornwall Council portfolio holder for children and families, Barbara Ellenbroek, said:

“We were overwhelmed by the positive response we got when we first launched the Cornwall Opportunities online hub. Now, we’re really excited to be launching the accompanying digital magazine to grow awareness and help more local people and families start well and live well as they take opportunities to find jobs, apprenticeships, and training in Cornwall.” 

Cornwall Opportunities is funded by the UK Government through the G7 Legacy Fund. The magazine is available to view for free online now and is available to download on the Cornwall Opportunities website
