National Careers Week 2021
By Sarah Wood
National Careers Week is a celebration of careers guidance and free resources in education across the UK. Next year it takes place 1st-6th March.
The aim of National Careers Week is to provide a focus for careers guidance activity at an important stage in the academic calendar to help support young people preparing to leave education.
The key aims are empowering students, empowering educators and empowering organisations.
Better informed students leads to better decision making. Empowering students is about providing quality free CEIAG (career education, information, advice and guidance) resources and linking education with the world of employment, to ensure students get an important insight to the future of work and further learning.
All National Careers Week resources are free to use in classrooms and colleges, to empower teachers and advisers. Educators can be sure that, by being mapped against the Gatsby Benchmarks, the resources will enhance and support the work they do.
The opportunities for businesses and organisations to promote their training or careers opportunities to future generations are limited, as many schools and colleges have little time for extended CEIAG activities. National Careers Week creates the time and provides the opportunity for organisations to engage and inspire young people.
Check out the National Careers Week website for resources, as well case studies of how teachers and advisers around the UK have inspired young people during previous Careers Weeks, and use them to get some ideas.
