Following the release of the 2017 Careers Strategy the provision of careers services in England has seen several changes from the introduction of the Gatsby Benchmarks, to the development of 20 Careers Hubs across England with 18 more Hubs and 2 expansions announced this year.

With change comes new challenges and opportunities to deliver excellence in CEIAG to children and young people. The 7th Annual Careers Education & Guidance Summit, delivered in partnership with Westminster Briefing and Careers England, will bring together careers professionals from across the public and private sector to share key learnings and tackle the remaining obstacles as we move towards meeting the 2020 Careers Strategy goals.
