National Careers Week (NCW) is a one-week celebration of careers guidance and free resources in education across the UK. Our aim is to provide a focus for careers guidance activity at an important stage in the academic calendar to help support young people develop awareness and excitement about their future pathways.
NCW is a dedicated week every year allowing schools, colleges, universities, alternative provision settings and organisations to work towards. It’s backed-up with free high-quality printable, downloadable, digital and video resources for educators to support planning and delivery.
The resources and activities are available all year round so you can make any of your CEIAG / Careers activities come to life – whenever you do them. (But of course we’d really love you to get involved in NCW!)
During the pandemic we created and delivered your Virtual Careers Fair for NCW2021 and NCW2022 – reaching over 1 million young people and providing inspiration and interaction for Spring and Summer Terms. The same goes for NCW2023 where once again, we had a similar reach.
