Further expansion of Buckinghamshire Careers Hub

The Buckinghamshire Careers Hub from this week will be expanded to include every secondary state-funded special school and pupil referral unit in Buckinghamshire. This will see an additional nine schools join the 36 mainstream schools already in the Careers Hub. 
This week’s launch event, hosted by Stony Dean School was attended by headteachers from the hub, as well as Careers Leaders, The Careers and Enterprise Company, Talentino, Department for Work and Pensions, Buckinghamshire Council, The Pinewood Group, Buckinghamshire Local Enterprise Partnership, other partners and local MP, Sarah Green. 
The extended support will help schools deliver all eight Gatsby Benchmarks and improve outcomes for all students in Buckinghamshire with special educational needs and disabilities, and additional needs, whether in mainstream or specialist settings.
Marina Jackson, Under 19 Skills Manager & Careers Hub Lead, Buckinghamshire Skills Hub, said: “I am excited for this next phase of the Buckinghamshire Careers Hub which has been established for over three years. Our special schools and pupil referral units already provide excellent careers education and with our support and guidance, we can continue to help young people develop the skills they need for independent living and their next steps after leaving education.”
Neil Strain, Headteacher at Stony Dean School, said: “It was delightful to be part of county wide initiative to help the most vulnerable into purposeful employment.”
