National Careers Week !
National Careers Week is celebrating its 10th Anniversary this year, from 1st- 6th March, a year when hope for the future and belief in the potential of careers is needed more than ever.
We recognise that a lot of young people and families are experiencing feelings of worry or uncertainty around future careers. You and your family, like most of us, have perhaps wondered if career opportunities will be affected by the pandemic, and what that might mean for the future of young people.
We want to encourage families to have conversations about careers and the future, especially this year in these challenging times. You can support young people to start exploring, spark their curiosity and build hope for their future by talking about careers during National Careers Week.
We have some resources to help. These can be found on our website:
The parent pack for NCW can be found here also, please explore to find out more.
