With youth unemployment remaining high and employers saying that young people are ill-prepared with the basic skills needed for employment, there has never been more need for careers guidance to be promoted and celebrated in education.
National Careers Week is a platform to inform and inspire the next generation as they enter the world of work. It is a celebration of careers guidance and free resources in education across the UK. The aim is to provide a focus for careers guidance activity at an important points in the academic calendar, to help support young people leaving education.
During #NCW21, education providers are encourage to bring together students, local employers and advisers through careers events and activities..
Organisers believe in the power of careers, education, information, advice and guidance as a driver of change within society, improving life choices and empowering people to take control of their future.
Organisers said: "All it takes is a pledge, a commitment to provide an insight or opportunity. If we all make a pledge, we passionately believe by working together we can make a real difference in 2021 and beyond."
