Local London Careers Hub, is one of four pan London sub regional Careers Hubs, working to ensure every young person in East London makes their best next step through working with Secondary Schools and Colleges to enhance Careers Education and Information, Advice and Guidance Programmes across the East London sub region.
The essence of the Hub is to enable collaboration between business partners, education providers and careers companies to support establishments in delivering the Gatsby Benchmarks, which is a framework for schools and colleges to deliver high quality Careers Education and Guidance.
The Career Hubs in London are funded through the Greater London Authority and Careers and Enterprise Company and East London is managed by Local London together with Bromley Council.
The Local London Careers Hub East Team supports schools and colleges in achieving the Gatsby Benchmarks through:
- introducing business volunteers, from local and national companies, otherwise known as Enterprise Advisers or Industry volunteers; with the principle aim of enabling young people to understand and prepare for their best next steps.
- offering a menu of activities that will enhance schools’ and colleges’ Careers Education Programmes.
- working with partners including HE, FE, Professional Providers and Sector organisations across East London to ensure all eligible schools and colleges will continue to receive support in delivering a good Careers Education Programme.
