We work with schools, colleges and employers to help every young person find their best next step.



Schools are one of the most important places where a young person learns about their future career options. We work with School Leaders, Governors and Careers Leaders to build modern, 21st century careers education programmes that support students to take their best next step out of education and into the world of work.


From national communities of best practice driving innovation, our local network and Careers Hub supports our schools through consultation, using and developing the 3 Ps in line with the national blueprint for best practice for careers – The Gatsby Benchmarks.

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.
