LCR Careers Hub

The Careers Hub works with local schools, colleges and employers to help every young person find their best next step.


Liverpool City Region Careers Hub is working with secondary schools and colleges to ensure that every young person receives outstanding, relevant careers education.  

Funded by The Careers & Enterprise Company, the national body for Careers Education in England, and in partnership with Growth Platform we connect education and business in order to inspire our future workforce together. 

As a Community of Practice, we bring together secondary schools, Special Schools and colleges with local employers and support them to provide high quality, inspirational careers support to students. 

LCR Careers Hub is a collaboration of 137 secondary schools and colleges across the  Region who work together to deliver the Gatsby Benchmarks with our local Enterprise Advisers, Cornerstone Employers, universities, training providers, local businesses and careers professionals to improve outcomes for young people and help prepare them for the world of work. 

We operate in partnership with 7 organisations, including All About STEM, Career Connect, Elevate EBP, Liverpool City Region Combined Authority, Shaping Futures, St Helens Chamber 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, the national best practice standard for careers support

Link schools and colleges to Enterprise Advisers (exceptional volunteers from the world of business), employers and other careers providers

Provide support and guidance to our Business Volunteer Community 

World-class careers education follows the eight Gatsby Benchmarks of good careers guidance. At its best careers is an essential part of a young person’s secondary 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.
