New hub to be launched to 'transform' careers advice

A New Anglia Careers Hub is to be set up involving 32 local schools and colleges in Ipswich, Norwich and along the A140 corridor to improve careers education as part of a £5 million government scheme involving 20 similar initiatives across England. The hub will work with universities, training providers, employers and career professionals and will be delivered by New Anglia LEP with a group including the Chantry Academy in Ipswich and Norfolk and Suffolk county councils.

The aim is for every school and college in the scheme to achieve all eight Gatsby Benchmarks by July 2020 and have a trained and accredited senior careers leader in place. It also aims to engage with the New Anglia Enterprise Adviser Network and for every young person to experience at least one “‘meaningful’ employer encounter” each year from year 7-13. Doug Field, chair of New Anglia LEP, said:“Our ambition is for the New Anglia Careers Hub to transform the careers advice offer for our young people. “
