Since the end of a funded careers service, schools have to source their own independent careers education and guidance for their students. We support schools to meet Department for Education requirements, following the Gatsby benchmarks.

We offer a range of events, programmes and services that open up a world of career possibilities for young people, and provide them with the necessary skills to succeed. These are tailored to suit different ages and stages of development and can be customised to meet the needs of each school.

What we do

  • Help students develop essential employability skills and experience through our diverse range of events.
  • Offer a one-to-one mentoring programme.
  • Support work experience placements and finding opportunities.
  • Be a source of information on apprenticeships for students, parents and employers.
  • Provide access to a Level 6-qualified careers guidance professional through our impartial Careers Advisory Service.
  • Find inspiring business professionals from a variety of industries to engage with students at school, and arrange business partnerships that match the school’s needs and the business’s objectives and capacity.
  • Link schools to useful resources in the community, such as enrichment opportunities, workplace visits and business support.
  • Provide local labour market trends and information, and work towards reducing skills gaps and gender disparity. For example, with Cambridge LaunchPad which aims to encourage more girls and young women into STEM subjects.

Much of our work in state schools is funded through the the Greater Cambridge Partnership and The Careers & Enterprise Company, but we offer some specific services to individual schools – like support with work experience, careers advice and mentoring – and all our services to independent schools for a fee.

Please get in touch if you would like to find out more about our events, programmes and services – we would love to hear from you!
