What is a Careers Hub?

A Careers Hub is a group of between 20 and 40 secondary schools and colleges located in the same geographic area, working together, and with partners in the business, public, education and voluntary sectors to deliver the Gatsby Benchmarks and ensuring that careers outcomes are improved for all young people.

Secondary schools and colleges within a Hub should have a shared vision of how they will work together to improve outcomes for the young people in their area.

What support do Careers Hubs receive?

All Careers Hubs have access to support and funding to help them meet the eight Gatsby Benchmarks of excellent careers education. This includes:

  • A ‘Hub Lead’ to help coordinate activity and build networks
  • Access to bursaries for individual schools and colleges to train Careers Leaders
  • Central Hub Fund of equivalent to £1k per school or college
