CHAIRMAN OF MIDDLETONMURRAY LAUNCHES IWANT2BA, THE FIRST FREE CAREERS PODCAST

Angela Middleton, Chairman of apprenticeships and training provider MiddletonMurray, today announces the launch of iwant2ba, a free podcast series that provides real-life careers advice to young people, parents and teachers.

I created iwant2ba to provide free, helpful and varied advice to people across the UK who are looking for guidance and inspiration to take the next step in their career.

Addressing concerns over the cost and quality of careers advice head-on, iwant2ba goes through an A-Z of career options that are relevant to listeners of any age - the first free series of its kind.

From an accountant to a doctor, MP and a videographer, Angela encourages professionals from a wide range of fields to share their experience, inspirations and how they got to where they are now.

Angela set up MiddletonMurray when she was 39 and is passionate about encouraging people to stay curious and open to career changes, regardless of their age.

iwant2ba has launched on iTunes with 17 free podcasts immediately available to download here: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/podcast/angela-middletons-iwant2ba/id1255865795?mt=2.

Angela Middleton, Chairman and founder of MiddletonMurray, said: “I noticed a real gap in the careers advice that young people receive at school. There are so few dedicated specialists that can provide good-quality career support. I created iwant2ba to provide free, helpful and varied advice to people across the UK who are looking for guidance and inspiration to take the next step in their career.”

These include MP James Brokenshire, who describes how he entered politics. His biggest piece of advice is that “any work experience, even if it is not in your field of work you want to be in, is so valuable”.

Also interviewed is scientist, Mike Gee, who discusses further education options at length: “A degree isn’t a necessity. You can build your career from an apprenticeship. One ex-colleague started as an apprentice in the lab and now works trackside for a Formula One team”.

A total of 28 podcasts will be available between now and December, and listeners can look forward to hearing from experts in sectors as diverse as fashion, construction and politics.
