Understanding the link between employers and schools and the role of the National Careers Service

The key aims of this project are to understand: how the NCS contractors and the Young People’s helpline are working with schools, employers and LEPs; how these links can be enhanced; what employers require from the NCS and how they currently link with schools and colleges; and how the NCS can improve services within the requirements and spirit of the ‘inspiration’ agenda.
