As part of a new careers strategy, the Government will invest £4 million to help every school and college have a careers leader.
Their purpose is to make sure young people can access advice on the best training routes and up-to-date information on the jobs market. An additional £5 million will be provided for the Careers and Enterprise Company to create 20 career hubs which will link schools and colleges to local universities and employers with the aim of providing additional support and mentoring opportunities for disadvantaged pupils.
