About the Event

Boy and girl on an apprenticeship

On 13th November 2018 Careers England in partnership with Westminster Briefing will be hosting the sixth annual Careers Education & Guidance Summit in London. As in previous years, this event will provide an opportunity for all involved in providing CEIAG to children and young people to take stock, hear from leading thinkers and grapple with challenges now and in the future.

Delegates will hear from government representatives, key funders, outstanding providers and those looking to move the sector forward and address the big issues of the day. Join fellow careers professionals as they ask the questions: How well are we currently doing? What more can be done to improve outcomes? What does the future hold for CEIAG in our schools and colleges?
