Operating as a wholly independent network, our team of experienced Careers educators work directly with leaders of Careers education. Our committee members offer support in designing and implementing whole school Careers strategies.

The volunteer Ambassador Regional Representative Members (ARRMs) work as a Committee (ARRC) who meet, as such, three times a year to share resources and good Careers practice.

ARRC is led by a steering group made up of six ARRMs who have a range of school setting expertise. More information on the steering group members can be found below.

The Career Interview

The Career Interview podcast turns the table on the traditional interview process where we’ll help you find out if a particular career path is right for you. Each week, join Rachael, the host who talks to an industry expert about their career to find out what it’s really like and how they got to where they are today.

The podcast covers a wide range of roles from different industries, from the ones you know about, the ones you think you know about and the ones you don’t. So if you’re not sure what the right career path is for you, you’re considering a career change or you’re just a little bit nosey then this is the podcast for you.
