Event description


We are delighted to announce that we will launch our new What Works research series on Monday 2nd October to help schools, employers and careers and enterprise providers to use evidence to shape their work preparing young people for the world of work.

The What Works series has been produced with various experts in careers provision and is made up of nine new papers, each addressing a different activity, its effectiveness and giving guidance on how to put knowledge into practice.

Each paper in the series will be released on a weekly basis with a dedicated webinar on Wednesdays at 1pm- 1.30pm to discuss the relevant paper’s findings and take questions.
