D2N2 LEP Careers Hub

The D2N2 Hub brings together school staff, particularly those who lead on careers education, and provides them with additional support, resources and training for their schools to deliver “modern, 21st century careers education for every child, no matter their background or circumstance”.

The scheme covers all of the D2N2 region and supports over 92,000 young people from 150 secondary schools and colleges. The Careers Hub links schools with employers, Further Education colleges and apprenticeship and in-work training providers, to make sure young people in the region know about the options available to them after they leave education, and the different jobs open to them.

The D2N2 Careers Hub is split into four operational areas which oversees their day-to-day running.

Research carried out by The Careers & Enterprise Company, which funds the Hub, shows that schools and colleges which are part of a Careers Hub deliver more support to students, have stronger links with local employers, offer more work experience opportunities and develop innovative ways of linking the curriculum with different jobs a student could go on to do.

The D2N2 Careers Hub works with member schools to ensure each has a fit-for-purpose strategic careers plan, while delivering a range of experience events and programmes for young people to access, made possible by the backing of supporting employers.

Research shows that young people who receive four or more meaningful engagements with employers between the ages of 11-16 years are 86% less likely to be unemployed or not in education, employment and training and, on average, earn 22% more.
