Careers Summit best practice

In view of the ongoing uncertainty caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and our duty of care towards delegates, speakers, sponsors and staff, Careers England and Dods have taken the decision to postpone the Careers Education and Guidance Summit to 16 March 2021. 

Postponement of this event is not a decision we have taken lightly. However, we believe it is the most appropriate in the current environment.


With the current and unprecedented changes facing the UK workforce the 8th Annual Careers Education & Guidance Summit, delivered in partnership with Westminster Briefing and Careers England, will bring together careers processionals to discuss how to deliver support to young people and adults in uncertain times.

"We will be bringing together experts on careers policy and practice with an audience of careers professionals to share knowledge and know how. Every year our conference is recognised as a major "must attend " event, given the economic challenges this is probably the most important ever." Steve Stewart, Executive Director, Careers England Ltd.
