Inspiration Station: National Careers Week
We can’t wait to celebrate, National Careers Week 2021 will take place from the 1st to the 6th of March. Here’s everything you need to know & a full collection of our recommended resources!
National Careers Week (NCW) is a celebration of careers guidance and free resources in education across the UK. The aim is to provide a focus for careers guidance activity at an important stage in the academic calendar to help support young people thinking about careers or leaving education for the world of work.
Schools, colleges, individuals, employers, training providers and communities are being encouraged to get involved, acknowledge skills, ambitions and abilities and celebrate careers!
National Careers Week Resources:
Your school, academy or college can offer careers advice and guidance to students with support from NCW via their free resources, information on current career opportunities and advice on activities.
There are so many activities on offer for all ages with games, apps and new primary resources too!
Why not host an NCW2021 assembly and follow it up with the ‘About Me’ worksheet. Get your students talking about what they have to offer besides exam results – a feel-good activity to show learners the transferable skills they already have!
To mark 10 years of National Careers Week, NCW are hosting their first Virtual Careers Fair (it’s HUGE!). With global employers involved, 5 virtual floors to visit, resources, interactive features and more, it’s not to be missed!
If you would like to share your plans for National Careers Week on social media, you can use the NCW2021 Pledge template. This is a great way to shout about your involvement and inspire others to take part too.
NCW have a phenomenal resource library. packed with ideas, puzzles, competitions, posters, exercises & projects. They also offer comprehensive & interactive NCW guides – you can click a link on any page and jump to what you need!
