Why now?

The UK is poised for a big career growth as we come out the other side of the pandemic and employers look to recruit the best talent, so they can succeed in a post Brexit economy.

It has been inspiring to work with the team at Weston College – they are at the forefront of innovation in career education, advice and guidance. The development of their Careers Excellence Hubs are just one shining example of how they are supporting their students to take their best next step out of education and into the wider world.

“The team at Weston College don’t just work on one off projects about careers and the world of work, they work strategically, embedding information and examples about careers into so much of what they do. All of this means their young people are as well prepared as possible to take on the future.”

Andrew Webster, Education Sector Manager – Further Education & Skills at The Careers & Enterprise Company
