Careers Hub Vision Event

Heading visual asset

Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire Careers Hub supported by the Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) have brought together over 100 Senior Leaders from schools and colleges, business leaders, the City and County Council, and the Careers and Enterprise Company at an event to set the vision for jobs and careers across the area.


The Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire LEP Careers Hub is a cluster of 83 secondary schools and colleges working together with partners across the private, public, education and voluntary sectors to deliver and implement careers best practice. Everyone involved in the Careers Hub has a shared vision of how they will work together to improve outcomes for young people’s futures.


The event was a chance to share an update on the local and national careers landscape, particularly in light of the impact the Covid-19 pandemic has had on young people, as well as set out the Department for Education (DfE) plans for careers, economic growth, and recovery. Focus was drawn upon the DfE Careers Strategy, Further Education (FE) White Paper Skills for Jobs, Statutory Guidance and where Careers Hubs can continue to be vehicles of support within the educational system in the local area.


Workshops took place throughout the day, bringing together career leaders and businesses to consider themes such as ‘school improvement through the lens of careers’ and how the schools and businesses can continue to work together to ensure progressive career programs for students, sufficiently preparing them for working life.

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.
