Solving the Apprenticeships and Technical Education (ATE) transitions riddle

We know there are barriers to young people taking up technical and vocational pathways. Having spent the last few years working with governments around the world to improve skills and employment systems, I know if we’re to break these barriers down, we need to do two things, acknowledge the complexity of the issue and agree a shared understanding of what’s happening at a local and national level.

The mission of the Careers & Enterprise Company (CEC) is to help every young person to find their best next step. We do this through a national framework tailored locally to reach and meet the needs of schools, colleges, businesses and technical education providers. Our ability to convene these actors puts us in a position to start breaking down the complexity, build consensus and a shared understanding to unpick and overcome the ATE transitions riddle.

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.
