What are Careers Hubs?

Careers Hubs bring together schools, colleges, employers, and apprenticeship providers in local areas across England. The goal is to make it easier for schools and colleges to improve how they prepare young people for their next steps. 

Careers Hubs drive progress against the Gatsby Benchmarks by enabling schools and colleges and their Careers Leaders to access training and support, and to collaborate in a focussed way, bringing together best practice and local labour market insight.

Hubs offer schools and colleges dedicated support from the local hub team and facilitate partnerships with key employers committed to improving careers across an area.

Join your Careers Hub

Careers Hubs are organised as partnerships between The Careers & Enterprise Company and institutions with a stake in local economic growth (Local Enterprise Partnerships, Local and Combined Authorities). Careers Hub teams are located within these partner organisations.

In addition to mainstream schools and colleges, SEND and Alternative Provision schools, apprenticeship and in-work training providers and businesses of every size and sector can join a hub.

If your local area is not yet covered by a Careers Hub, you can still receive support to connect with employers in your area. We can partner a business volunteer with your college or school to help design and deliver your careers programme.

Contact us to access support from our network or to reach your local Careers Hub.
