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.
As we enter Phase Two of the network we have made some significant changes to how we operate. Those changes have seen a restructure to the steering group and the staggered introduction of our franchise network model.
Steering Group – the restructure of this group allows us to broaden our reach in supporting Careers professionals. The steering group meets three times per year to discuss Careers education and it’s impact on young people. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in being a part of the steering group – please use ‘Steering Group’ in your subject heading.
Careers Network Hubs – new to 2021, we are in the process of launching local and regional network hubs. These are not centrally run or organised, we work with hub leads to provide local support through organically led agendas that best fit the need of the hub. Please use our ‘Contact Us‘ page if you are interested in leading or joining a hub
Ambassador Regional Representative Members – our ARRMs primarily support fellow Careers professionals at different levels of experience and expertise. Please leave a request through our ‘Contact Us‘ page to access this support.

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.
