About Us

We work with primary schools, secondary schools and colleges across Liverpool City Region to ensure that every young person receives outstanding, relevant careers education.

Funded by The Careers and Enterprise Company, the national body for careers education in England, and in partnership with Liverpool City Region Combined Authority, we connect education and business to inspire our future workforce together.

We bring together secondary schools, special schools and colleges, with local employers and support them to provide high quality, inspirational careers support to students.

The Liverpool City Region Careers Hub is a collaboration of 142 secondary schools and colleges who work together to deliver the Gatsby Benchmarks with our local Enterprise Advisers, Cornerstone Employers, universities, training providers, businesses and careers professionals to improve outcomes for young people and prepare them for the world of work.

We operate in partnership with five organisations, including Liverpool City Region Combined Authority, All About Futures/All About STEM, Career Connect, Elevate EBP,,   Shaping Futures and Wirral Council  each delivering an Enterprise Coordinator.

Our skilled team of Enterprise Coordinators work across Liverpool City Region to:

  • Provide support and training for Careers Leaders in schools and colleges.
  • Support schools to implement the eight Gatsby Benchmarks, a framework for world-class careers education.
  • Link schools and colleges to Enterprise Advisers, employers and other careers providers.
  • Offer guidance and support to local employers who wish to engage with careers education.

World-class careers education follows the eight Gatsby Benchmarks of good careers guidance. At it’s best careers is an essential part of a young person’s education, beginning early and continuing throughout school life. Real world learning, knowledge, inspiration and advice is gained through multiple employer and workplace engagements, exposure to further and higher education, as well as through the curriculum and in one to one personal guidance.

Primary school pupils in our region are benefiting from a new careers programme that will encourage them to think about future jobs early, whilst nurturing aspirations and challenging stereotypes.

Evidence shows that children start to form ideas about their future as they start primary school.

By linking lessons in an age-appropriate way to different careers, training and skills, the programme will bring learning alive and inspire pupils about the world of work. It will also provide opportunities for pupils to meet employers and role models from a range of industries, helping to raise aspirations and link their learning to future skills, jobs and careers.
