The 2013 National Careers Week is scheduled for the week of 4th – 8th of March, 2013.

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, information on current career opportunities and advice on activities and exercises to run.

Last year services provided to students during National Careers Week included daily drop-in workshops; careers fairs; employer visits; focus on subject relevant careers in lessons and showing 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 our next generation as they enter the world of work.

You can sign up to get involved in the National Careers Week and share your plans of what you are working towards for the week of 4th – 8th March, 2013.

National Careers Week is supported by the Institute of Career Guidance, Apprenticeships and jobcentreplus.
