Competition aims to make career dreams come true

What would you chose to do if you were allowed to job swap for just one day? If you've always dreamed of being a fire fighter, longed to work in a chocolate factory or want to see life from higher up the career ladder, Learning at Work Day could be your chance.

As part of the national celebrations of workplace learning, lifelong learning charity, the Campaign for Learning, in partnership with on-line recruitment company reed.co.uk, is offering the opportunity to win your dream job for a day.

Six lucky winners will be given the chance to make their career dreams come true and spend the day learning what life is really like in their ideal job. The experience is designed to give the winners the opportunity to discover at first hand the skills needed to achieve their work aspirations.

The competition will run from 18th January and with a closing date of 31st March you have plenty of time to dream up the perfect job for you. To enter, log onto www.learningatworkday.com and explain what job you would love to do for the day and why. The winners will be picked in April with the dream jobs taking place in May during the build up to Learning at Work Day.

Learning at Work Day, which takes place on 26th May 2005, is an annual awareness campaign, co-ordinated nationally by the Campaign for Learning, to highlight the importance of continued work place learning for employees and employers. Last year over 6,000 organisations took part hosting staff learning activities ranging from people bingo to project management courses and job swaps to Japanese lessons.
