Schools and Colleges
The government’s Careers Strategy published in December 2017 sets out guidance for schools and colleges regarding careers provision and best practice expectations.
The Heart of the South West Careers Hub plays a central part in supporting schools and colleges to help deliver the government’s Careers Strategy here in the Heart of the South West. Established to create sustainable relationships between education and business, the Heart of the South West Careers Hub, facilitates schools and employers to work together to inspire and prepare young people for the fast-changing world of work.
The Careers Hub supports schools and colleges to implement high quality careers guidance by matching establishments with a named volunteer from business, an Enterprise Adviser (EA). Working school leaders, careers professionals and supported by a dedicated Heart of the South West Enterprise Coordinator, an EA uses their strategic experience, industry knowledge and business contacts to help to develop a careers plan and create opportunities for pupils in line with the Statutory Guidance for School Leaders
