Creating pathways for young people to bring career aspirations to life is an essential part of their educational journey, and one in which we’re seeing a positive shift.

Join us on Brighter Futures this week where we look at the growing initiatives around young people’s pathways with The Careers & Enterprise Company’s Oli de Botton, and Education Development Trust’s Mark De Backer & Wendy Phillips.

We hear their fascinating insight on careers education, from NEET-preventative measures to connecting with industry professionals and embedding careers education throughout the school journey.
