The Careers and Enterprise Company exists to facilitate a world-class careers education, inspiring and preparing young people for the world of work.

Every young person deserves the best possible start to their working life; to choose their path, fulfil their potential and contribute to a thriving economy. Careers and enterprise education inspires, informs and immerses young people in the ever-changing world of work. Over recent years, we have established the foundations of a new approach to long-standing issues affecting the quality and availability of careers education for young people across England. Our work began with a transformative employer-led programme to connect business with education. Today, we support schools and colleges to deliver world-class careers education, responsive to individual pupil needs and underpinned by the internationally recognised Gatsby Career Benchmarks.

We have learnt that well-resourced, nationally coordinated, and locally tailored provision, with active employer involvement, unlocks opportunity for young people.

Whether you are a school or college looking to enhance your careers provision or an employer looking to inspire young people to join your industry, the Careers and Enterprise Network can support you.
