HOP returns to National Careers Week (NCW) 2023!
After the success of last two years HOP will return with a floor at National Careers Week. Empowering Positive Change through Careers Education.
We are extremely excited to have taken the pledge and become a partner of the National Careers Week for a third time - 2023 March 6-11.
National Careers Week (NCW) is a celebration of careers guidance and free resources in education across the UK. Their aim is to provide a focus for careers guidance activity at an important stage in the academic calendar to help support young people develop awareness and excitement about their future pathways.
With youth unemployment remaining high and employers citing that young people are ill prepared with the basic skills needed for employment, there has never been a more need for careers guidance to be promoted and celebrated in education. National Careers Week is a great platform to inform and inspire the next generation as they enter the world of work and HOP are here to do just that.
NCW is a dedicated week every year allowing schools, colleges, universities, alternative provision settings and organisations to work towards. It’s backed-up with free high-quality printable, downloadable, digital and video resources for educators to support planning and delivery. The resources and activities are available all year round so you can make any of your CEIAG / Careers activities come to life – whenever you do them. (But of course we’d really love you to get involved in NCW!) During the pandemic they created and delivered your Virtual Careers Fair for NCW2021 and NCW2022 – reaching over 1 million young people and providing inspiration and interaction for Spring and Summer Terms and this year is going to be even better!
National Careers Week takes place between the 6th and 11th of March 2023, encouraging education providers to bring together students, local employers and advisers through careers events and activities.
HOP will have it’s own floor filled with impartial resources to help young people make informed confident decisions about their future.
Providing quality free CEIAG resources and linking education with the world of employment to ensure students get an important insight to the future of work and further learning. Better informed students result in better decision making.
Empowering Educators & Advisors
All of the resources are free to use in classrooms and colleges. You can be assured that by being mapped against the Gatsby Benchmarks, they will enhance and support the work you do. The NCW website shares some great case studies of how teachers and advisers around the UK have been inspiring young people during Careers Week – feel free to get some ideas.
The opportunities for organisations to promote their training or careers opportunities to future generations are limited; schools and colleges have little time for extended CEIAG activities. This is why NCW is so important – they create the time and provide the opportunity for Organisations to engage and inspire.
In preparation for next year’s National Careers Week the National Careers Week are encouraging individuals and organisations to make their pledge using the hashtag #NCW2023.
Hop and NCW believe in the power of careers, education, information, advice and guidance as a driver of change within society, improving life choices and empowering people to take control of their future. All it takes is a pledge, a commitment to provide an insight or opportunity. If we all make a pledge, we passionately believe by working together we can make a real difference in 2023 and beyond.
