Make your pledge for National Careers Week 2019 here!
National Careers Week is a celebration of careers guidance and free resources in education across the UK. The aim is to provide a focus for careers guidance activity at an important points in the academic calendar to help support young people leaving education. With youth unemployment remaining high and employers citing that young people are ill prepared with the basic skills needed for employment, there has never been a more need for careers guidance to be promoted and celebrated in education. National Careers Week is a great platform to inform and inspire the next generation as they enter the world of work.
National Careers Week takes place between the 4th and 9th of March 2019, encouraging education providers to bring together students, local employers and advisers through careers events and activities.
In preparation for next year’s National Careers Week we are encouraging individuals and organisations to make their pledge using the hashtag #NCW2019.
Pledges could include the following:
- A career focused lesson
- Promote and get involved with #NCW2019
- Arrange to visit a local School, College, Training Provider or University
- Leaders – free up staff time to get involved with #NCW2019
- Giving an insight in your career area
- Supporting Careers Events
- Career insights and talks
- Providing Work experience
Or alternatively make your own pledge.
We believe in the power of Careers, Education, Information, Advice and Guidance as a driver of change within society, improving life choices and empowering people to take control of their future. All it takes is a pledge, a commitment to provide an insight or opportunity. If we all make a pledge, we passionately believe by working together we can make a real difference in 2019 and beyond.

The countdown is on for Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2019 from 4 to 8 March.
Skills Development Scotland aims to make this year’s #ScotAppWeek the best yet, with the help of employers, apprentices, industry bodies, learning providers, colleges, universities and campaign supporters.
Apprenticeships and work-based learning are providing the skills needed for a successful Scotland.
With that in mind this year’s theme is ‘Skills for the Future’, recognising the importance of investing in our workforce.
We want everyone with a shared interest in the success of apprenticeships to get involved and show how they support work-based learning.
This year, there are three simple ways we're asking supporters to back #ScotAppWeek:
- Recognise the people who have supported their own work-based learning through our #HereBecauseOf social media campaign
- Join Scotland’s Apprentice Network
- Support Scotland’s Biggest Parents’ Evening
The Campaign Toolkit on apprenticeships.scot provides full details on how to get involved, with links to downloadable graphics, social media posts and supporting materials.
There is also an online form to register your events and activity so we can promote everything that’s happening throughout the country.
