National Careers Week 2018 Confirmed as the biggest yet.

Today (30 Apr) we are publishing the #NCW2018 Highlight Magazine which summarises  the most successful  National Careers Week ever.  #NCW2018 broke record after record for engagement, reach and impact.  More schools were involved, encouragingly, more primary schools than ever are running careers related activities in NCW.

More companies were involved in delivering activities to more young people and more evidence of the impact of NCW came through the many entries to our case study competition, prizes donated by Prospects Educational Resources and Steam Co and the Humber Bondholders competition.  Both competitions drew entries from schools and  colleges  the length and breadth of the country.

Without sponsors, NCW wouldn’t exist so our thanks goes out to RBS, our headline sponsor and our day sponsors:-

 Feedback from our sponsors this year has been even more positive than in previous years.

With Fena Boyle Training and careers manager at Careers at Sea commenting:

“NCW provided a dynamic and engaging platform for Careers at Sea to reach a new audience. Our partnership on social media with NCW increased our impact and helped us to achieve our goal of raising the profile of the Merchant Navy and careers at sea. We look forward to being a part of this informative week in the future and helping to provide young people with accurate careers information.”

Janet Colledge, Education director of NCW expressed the whole board’s reaction to NCW by saying:

“The whole board has been on a high since NCW. The stories, tweets, comments and reactions alone meant we knew that NCW2018 had grown even bigger than NCW2017.  We are very grateful to the variety of allies we have gained within the careers  and youth development communities.  Support from the National Careers Service, many sector organisations such as Careers in Housing and Springboard and most importantly of all the DFE and many MPs who got involved, Emma Hardy MP and the Minister for Education, Damien Hinds especially.”
