There are twelve Careers Clusters in London which have been funded by the European Social Fund for two years. They are contract managed by the Education and Skills Funding Agency.
The clusters work with senior leadership teams in secondary schools and further education colleges to help design high quality careers guidance offers for pupils. They:
- try out different employer-based activities for pupils
- help teachers to understand London's job opportunities
- support pupils into work placements and internships
Nine of the clusters have a purely geographic focus, working with schools and colleges in particular locations. The other three are also sector-based, focussing on these industry areas:
- creative and digital
- food and accommodation
The clusters have all worked with Project Oracle to achieve Standard 1 validation of their theories of change and evaluation plans.
