Careers Summit best practice

Following the release of the 2017 Careers Strategy the provision of careers services in England has seen several changes from the introduction of the Gatsby Benchmarks, to the development of 20 Careers Hubs across England with 18 more Hubs and 2 expansions announced this year.

With change comes new challenges and opportunities to deliver excellence in CEIAG to children and young people.
