National Careers Week (NCW) is a celebration of careers guidance and free resources in education across the UK. The aim is to provide a focus for careers guidance activities at an important stage in the academic calendar to help support young people leaving education.
National Careers Week encourages education providers to bring together students, local employers and advisers through careers events and activities. During National Careers Week it is up to every school, academy and college to offer careers advice and guidance to their students. We are here to help and can provide free resources and exercises, as well as information on current career opportunities.
Last year services provided to students during National Careers Week included daily drop-in workshops; careers fairs; employer visits and careers films.
At a time of high youth unemployment, there has never been a bigger need for careers guidance to be promoted and celebrated in education. National Careers Week is your platform to advise and inspire the next generation as they enter the world of work.
