Education Development Trust to deliver new National Careers Service contract

Education Development Trust is delighted to announce that we have been successful in securing the new National Careers Service delivery contract for the North East, Cumbria and Yorkshire and the Humber. We have been delivering the service since 2004 and will now continue to work with some of our trusted partners across the regions for the next three years.

The National Careers Service provides high quality, impartial and free information, advice and guidance to help young people and adults make decisions on learning, training and work. The Service places particular emphasis on social mobility and building resilience, preparing customers for the needs of the future economy.

Our delivery is centred on qualified careers advisers, using face-to-face, phone and digital channels.  

Our work delivering the National Careers Service changes lives, improves communities and benefits the national economy. Testimonials from customers, partners and stakeholders are supported by qualitative data gathered via our feedback process: 97% of customers in Yorkshire and the Humber felt that they had benefited from the service, as did 94% of customers in the North East.

"My experience with National Careers Service was outstanding, I have been supported and treated very well, I have been given really useful information and advice, and my confidence has improved."
