National Careers Week
What is National Careers Week?
National Careers Week empowers young people to make informed choices about their next steps, making sure they are getting the best career advice and information as possible. The week creates excitement surrounding possible careers for young people.
It is marked in the UK in 2023 from the 6th to the 11th of March.
National Careers Week and Employment
Young people are the future of all organisations, so National Careers Week is a good opportunity for employers to access the future generations and gain their interest in the work companies do, so they can imagine their future possibilities.
- Use National Careers Week to work with schools and colleges to promote opportunities and offer career advice to young people
- Attend a job fair to drive recruitment
- Promote apprenticeship opportunities.
- Review job descriptions and person specifications to ensure the skills and experience required does not unintentionally create barriers for young people
