How to contact this service


Careers Hubs bring together schools, colleges, employers, and apprenticeship providers in local areas across England. The goal is to make it easier for schools and colleges to improve how they prepare young people for their next steps. 

Careers Hubs drive progress against the Gatsby Benchmarks by enabling schools and colleges and their Careers Leaders to access training and support, and to collaborate in a focussed way, bringing together best practice and local labour market insight.

Hubs offer schools and colleges dedicated support from the local hub team and facilitate partnerships with key employers committed to improving careers across an area.

Careers Hubs are organised as partnerships between The Careers & Enterprise Company and institutions with a stake in local economic growth (Local Enterprise Partnerships, Local and Combined Authorities). Careers Hub teams are located within these partner organisations.

In addition to mainstream schools and colleges, SEND and Alternative Provision schools, apprenticeship and in-work training providers, and businesses of every size and sector can join a hub.

Hub-supported programmes bring partners together, to act with the shared aims of inspiring young people, and giving students the knowledge and practical skills to make decisions about their next steps. 

The Five priority areas for the South East Midlands Careers Hub are: 

  1. Connecting careers provision in schools and colleges to the needs of the local economy
  2. Targeting interventions for economically disadvantaged young people, those who face additional barriers and those at risk of leaving school and not continuing training for getting a job
  3. Amplifying the opportunities of apprenticeships, technical and vocational routes into work
  4. Facilitating more, high quality experiences with employers for students and teachers
  5. Embedding best practice (known as the 8 Gatsby Benchmarks) in careers provision in schools and colleges
