The Heart of the South West Careers Hub is one of 34 Careers Hubs in England, established in collaboration with The Careers and Enterprise Company to help transform careers education for young people around the country. The HotSW Careers Hub is delivered by the Heart of the South West (HotSW) LEP.

From September 2020, the HotSW Careers Hub has been expanded to every state-funded school, college and FE institution across Devon, Somerset, Plymouth and Torbay – becoming one of the largest hubs in the country. Working together with employers, universities and career professionals to deliver the Gatsby Benchmarks and ensure that careers outcomes are improved for all young people, including those in special educational needs and disabilities schools and pupil referral units.

National research shows that schools and colleges who are a part of a Careers Hub run twice as many regular encounters with employers and offer more work experience opportunities to students.

The Government’s Careers Strategy has been promoted nationally to support schools in implementing better career and enterprise provision for young people. The HotSW Careers Hub works with local businesses, innovators and industry experts alongside educationalists, to help make this happen.
