Planning your day

Our school engagement team is on hand to discuss all your requirements for an innovative drop down careers and enterprise day. We have options for schools to deliver the activities themselves using our virtual platform or book our experienced facilitators to run the day for you! 

The great news is that we are committed to working with schools to ensure their careers and enterprise experience runs smoothly, and that students leave the sessions engaged, inspired and motivated!

A focus on careers

Our programmes are the start of an exciting journey for your students, encouraging the use of employability skills like creative thinking, problem solving, and teamwork. 

This year we are focused on the total career journey, and not just a solus enterprise day. Students will be required to build on these skills over their school lives and start thinking about their future. That’s why we are so pleased to announce that all schools taking part in The National Careers Challenge will also receive complimentary access to Launch Your Career – the UK’s fastest growing search and discovery careers platform.
