National Careers Week 2016

March 7th – 11th sees the return of National Careers Week, the biggest week for careers in the UK. This year our overarching theme is Future Jobs.

NCW2015 saw an unprecedented take up across schools, colleges, Universities and All-Age agencies with thousands of organised events helping nearly 1 million people across the UK.

RBS are the sponsors for NCW2016, providing a fantastic fully equipped Careers Tour Bus which will be visiting London, Bristol, Manchester, Leeds and Birmingham during the week.

With over 300 RBS Apprentices going back to school to provide personal insights into the world of work, NCW2016 is going to have a massive positive impact.

Supported by the UK’s largest Employers and Training Providers and backed by the National Careers Service, the National Apprenticeship Service and the Skills Funding Agency, NCW2016 is set to be bigger than ever.

Sue Husband, Director of the National Apprenticeship Service, said:

It’s vital that young people get the help and advice they need when leaving full time education to ensure they take the right step to a successful future. National Careers Week is instrumental in making this happen and we are delighted to be supporting it.

There are many options open to young people, with apprenticeships becoming an increasingly popular choice. They provide the chance to gain the skills and knowledge to succeed, in some cases up to degree level, while working and earning. There is a huge variety of apprenticeships available across England offered by leading businesses of all sizes, so young people can find the apprenticeship that’s right for them.

The growth of higher and degree apprenticeships is widening access to the professions and providing higher level technical skills employers need to improve productivity and giving young people an equally valid career route as going to university.”
