West Yorkshire Careers Hub

Careers Hubs are a central part of the government’s Careers Strategy  and Statutory Provision for School Leaders.  The aim is to help all secondary schools and colleges implement high quality careers guidance to help young people make more informed decisions around their future choices.

The West Yorkshire Careers Hub supports the region’s secondary schools and colleges to have a modern 21st century careers strategy, supported by our network of business volunteers.

We work in a very inclusive manner tailoring our offer to all educational institutions across West Yorkshire.

Nicola Hall – Director of Education and Grant Funding
