School Partnership Campaign Tackles Employment Crisis

Posted on Thursday, June 26th, 2014

National Schools Partnership have designed innovative resources for a consortium of businesses led by National Grid to develop Careers Lab, a new schools initiative that guides young people in their exploration of careers.

This campaign has been created in response to the UK’s growing skills crisis and serves to bridge the gap between education and work for young people. The resources created aim to inspire students about the world of work, create aspiration by showing the various routes into work and encourage self-exploration by demonstrating case studies, career plans and job techniques. 

With nearly a million unemployed 18-24 year olds and more than 700,000 businesses struggling to fill vacancies due to a lack of relevant skills[1], National Schools Partnership’s task was to provide support through resources which can be used by teachers and pupils in collaboration with local business ambassadors who give insights into a working life, the roles available and the skills required for success.

The Department for Education’s 2014 report states that schools have a duty to secure independent career guidance for all year 8-13 pupils[2]. Therefore forward-thinking companies like National Grid and the Careers Lab partners, who include Capgemini, Costain and Whitbread are fulfilling a real need while reaping the benefits of a better educated future workforce. 

Mark Fawcett, Chief Executive of National Schools Partnership states, ‘We are delighted to be part of this important and much-needed initiative. The programme provides an excellent platform to connect businesses with young people and address the growing need for quality career provisions.’
