Over the coming weeks from 2nd October – 11th December, we will be launching one of our nine new reports as part of the What Works research series.

The series is made up of nine papers each focusing on the effectiveness of different careers and enterprise activities.

Each paper, produced with various experts in careers provision, addresses a different activity and provides guidance on how to put knowledge into practice.

We will launch a new report each Monday, over the 11-week period (with two break weeks) with a supporting webinar hosted by experts in the field the following Wednesday. The webinars will take place between 1pm – 1.30pm and will discuss the paper including a Q&A.

Please share on your social media channels using the hashtag #CECWhatWorks and encourage others to join in the discussion.
