New careers strategy to develop the future workforce

Students at science fair

The Department of Education has launched a new careers strategy to better equip young people with the skills they need, and employers want, post-Brexit. 

Aims of the strategy include building a careers system that encourages earlier engagement between employers and the potential future workforce, and increasing the knowledge of education providers, and young people, about the different routes into employment.

Each school and college will have a dedicated careers leader in place by the start of the new school year – backed by £4 million of funding – who can give advice about the range of opportunities and qualifications young people need to succeed in the future. 

In January 2018, schools will also be required to give apprenticeship providers and other technical education providers more opportunities to talk to pupils about the courses and jobs they offer. This is an opportunity for employers to be active in these conversations to promote apprenticeships in the NHS and grow their workforce supply for the future.
