Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG)
National Careers Week 1st March - 5th March 2021
National Careers Week (NCWCIC) is a celebration of careers guidance and free resources in education across the UK.
The aim is to provide a focus for careers guidance activity at an important stage in the academic calendar to help support young people leaving education. With youth unemployment remaining high and employers citing that young people are ill prepared with the basic skills needed for employment, there has never been a bigger need for careers guidance to be promoted and celebrated in education.
National Careers Week is the perfect platform to advise and inspire the next generation as they enter the world of work. The week encourages education providers to bring together students, local employers and advisers through careers events and activities.
Please see the National Careers Week website for further information and video.
