Time & Location
About The Event
The Careers and Enterprise Company’s mission is to prepare and inspire young people for the fast-changing world of work. The organisation links schools and colleges to employers to help them deliver world class careers support for all young people.
The requirements of the government’s Careers Strategy has established a new set of world class standards to be implemented in schools and colleges. In this session, delegates are invited to benchmark how well their trust is able to secure the best future for pupils, against other trusts and against the national average performance, using CEC’s Compass careers benchmarking tool. Board leaders will gain a high-level overview of their trust’s position in terms of careers provision and discuss opportunities for improvement, to increase social mobility and ensure the best life chances for pupils.
Careers and Enterprise Company supports trusts, by:
1. Linking schools and colleges to employers and other external careers providers by extending the Enterprise Adviser Network across the country and establishing 40 Careers Hubs.
2. Providing training and support to Careers Leaders in schools and colleges.
3. Supporting implementation of a best practice standard for careers support, the Gatsby Benchmarks, with tools and targeted funding.
