Careers advisers, teachers, students, parents and employers will come together for National Careers Week (NCW) 2013 01/03/2013

Running from 4-8 March, NCW is designed to support students of all ages, helping them to improve their skills before they take their first step on the career ladder.

'National Careers Week  showcases what people all over the country are doing to support, console, inspire and challenge anyone who has a stake in career thinking and career action,' says professor Rachel Mulvey, chair in career guidance at the University of East London.

More than 1,500 secondary schools and colleges in the UK are participating, reaching more than 1.1 million students.

In 2012 students involved in National Careers Week experienced daily workshops; careers fairs; employer visits; career-focused lessons and films.

This year there are hundreds of activities planned across the country. For example, De Montfort University has employer presentations from Abercrombie & Fitch and Coca Cola, and subject-specific career clinics scheduled for its students.
