The Secretary of State for Education, The Right Hon Damian Hinds MP, today announced the names of 20 new Careers Hubs across England.

Education Secretary Damian Hinds said:

“We want to build a country that works for everyone, with the same opportunities available to all, whatever their background or circumstance.  The ability to make informed choices about your future is key to being able to take up opportunities and discover a fulfilling career.  

“We are improving education for every child with reformed GCSEs and A levels, better-quality apprenticeships and the introduction of T Levels. These changes will make sure that young people have the knowledge and skills they need to make the most of their potential.

“The Careers Hubs announced today will support young people with the right advice to help them make decisions about their future by building better links with employers and providing practical guidance and support to improve the provision of careers advice in schools.”

In addition to the 20 new Careers Hubs, the Careers and Enterprise Company will continue to fund the North East Hub, which will use its expertise to support new Hubs across the country.
