Our Network acts as a catalyst, connecting employers with schools and colleges throughout England to deliver world-class careers education.

The Network is made up of passionate, experienced professionals who are committed to preparing young people in their region to make informed choices about their future. The local geographical focus allows schools and employers to create effective partnerships and the intrinsic connection between regions, facilitated by the Careers and Enterprise Company, allows for good practice to be shared across the country.

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, our Network can support you.

Our Network enables young people to learn from employers and entrepreneurs like Bejay whose story offers far more than inspiration, providing insight into personal motivation, learning from different sectors and the reality of the world of work.

For young people to take action after an employer-led experience, a sustainable school-based careers programme must be in place. To support schools and colleges in providing high quality careers education, we measure impact in line with the Gatsby Benchmarks, a framework of eight guidelines designed to embed careers education throughout every academic year. Our Network has a wealth of knowledge, experience and expertise which enables schools and colleges to access resources that will help at every stage.
