It was great to be a part of the launch of the new urban quarter, as the plans to create a £60m urban destination next to Stoke-on-Trent train station were unveiled by award-winning social impact developers Capital & Centric.

Leader of Stoke-on-Trent City Council Abi Brown and Capital & Centric Co Founder Tim Heatley took part in an exciting panel interview session to discuss the amazing economic and social impact that we will see from the new Goods Yard development, alongside the bounty of opportunities for our young people in the city and beyond to develop new skills and connect with the world of work.

The plans will see the Swift House site transformed with new homes, a hotel and work spaces alongside shops, bars, outdoor areas and gardens open to everyone.

Capital & Centric are working in partnership with Stoke-on-Trent City Council to bring forward this game changing project and the Stoke Staffs Careers Hub is excited to support and offer connectivity into our local education system.

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.
