National Careers Week 6th - 10th March 2017

06 March 2017

National Careers Week (NCW) is a celebration of career opportunities across the UK. The aim is to promote careers related activities and access to free career resources to help support young people exploring their future choices and those looking for new education, training and employment opportunities

Our role this week will be to highlight some interesting career paths and to point you in the direction of some really useful careers information. We also have our own valuable information on this website so don’t forget to check that out too.

Up and down the country, schools and academies will be taking part in celebration of careers this week and our TrustCareers and YES Advisers will be in schools delivering advice, guidance and workshops to students so if you see an Adviser in your school, don’t forget to stop and say hi.
