Got a great idea for a project to inspire your pupils about careers? We’re looking for schools and colleges to take part in a brand new funding scheme to help raise the aspirations of disadvantaged pupils. Funded by the West Yorkshire Combined Authority, this is a brilliant opportunity for the next generation to feel inspired, work with employers and realise their #futuregoals.
Colleges, secondary schools or a consortium of secondary schools can apply for funding ranging from £7,000 to £50,000 until 21 June 2019 to achieve good careers education and strengthen engagement with employers or engagement with young role models working in priority sectors.
This will help schools and colleges to demonstrate progress towards Gatsby benchmark 5 (encounters with employers and employees) and Gatsby benchmark 6 (experiences of workplaces), which The Government’s Careers Strategy has asked all schools and colleges to achieve by September 2020.
