From classroom to career

Great careers education to support your students’ first steps onto the careers ladder.

When your students leave your school, we know that you want to ensure that they have the knowledge and confidence to take their next steps to success.

Whether they want to explore further education, apprenticeships, university or go straight into employment, NCFE can help you to develop impartial and supportive careers education that supports them to make decisions about their future.

Our solutions will support you to ensure that you’re meeting the requirements for good careers education, information, advice and guidance with our range of resources and qualifications.


Great careers education that works

“High-quality careers advice can make a real difference to young people’s outcomes after school, particularly those from disadvantaged homes. It is more important today as fewer young people now work at weekends or part-time, missing out on essential life skills gained in the workplace.”

Good careers education and guidance also make a significant contribution to social mobility and social justice. One way we can help eradicate unfairness and disadvantage from our society is to ensure that individuals can identify and then overcome the barriers which might hinder them from progressing in education and employment.
