Heading visual asset

Careers hubs are a group of schools and colleges, across a designated area or district who have a shared vision and work in collaboration with each other, business partners, education and training providers to help deliver the Gatsby Benchmarks and improve careers outcomes for their young people. All hubs have access to a dedicated team of support, funding opportunities and bursaries and expert knowledge and resource to help drive this change. To accommodate the growing commitment of schools and colleges to join the Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire Careers Hub network we developed a new delivery model to include four district Careers Hubs (Stoke-on-Trent, North Staffs, West Staffs and East Staffs). Each hub has its own expert Enterprise Coordinator.

The Careers and Enterprise framework supports schools to recruit Enterprise Advisers. Working with a local school or college, an Enterprise Adviser can help support pathways into industry and shape young people’s futures, they can help to bridge the gap between the world of work and education, working with the Careers Leader and wider senior leaders of the school or college to create opportunities for young people. Enterprise Advisers are essential business ambassadors to support schools to achieve their vision for careers development for their young people.

An Enterprise Adviser is…

  • A business professional who comes from any industry sector or professional background, be that employed, self-employed or recently employed.
  • Dedicated to making a lasting impact on the future outcomes of young people.
  • Willing to volunteer their time to achieve positive change in local schools and colleges, using core skills including relationship building and being analytical.

What Schools Say About Us

Being part of the Stoke on Trent and Staffordshire Careers Hub has been pivotal to the development of careers provision in our school. The Hub have shared good practice across their members resulting in a stronger focus on good quality provision. The annual event enabled the hub to share their vision of School Improvement Through The Lens of Careers and looking beyond the Benchmarks. It was a fantastic opportunity to share different models of school improvement and strategies to further develop careers provision to enhance the future opportunities of our young people.
