The hub model brings together schools and college groups to provide career guidance and links with employers, universities, training providers and career professionals to improve outcomes for young people. The career hub model has outperformed the national average in all of the Gatsby benchmarks and disadvantage areas have seen the biggest improvements.
Speaking on the investment, Damian Hinds said: “It is so important that young people get to see and know about a range of different jobs and careers so they can see the possible opportunities out there. Good careers education is such a valuable asset that helps children to explore future possibilities and go on to lead happy rewarding lives”.
