Dorset Careers Hub helps young people in Dorset progress into promising careers and fulfil their potential, by improving the careers education they receive.

It achieves this by;

  • Fostering collaboration between local employers, schools and colleges.
  • Maintaining a network of volunteer business advisers who support schools and colleges (the Enterprise Advisor Network).
  • Sharing local economic and labour market information with schools and colleges.
  • Assisting schools and colleges to achieve national careers education quality standards (the Gatsby Benchmarks).

Dorset Careers Hub is rolling out the national Careers and Enterprise Company programme in our local area. It is led by Dorset LEP, in partnership with BCP and Dorset Councils.

Dorset Careers Hub shapes the future talent available to the Dorset economy by promoting growth industries and accurate economic information to schools and colleges, and by giving young people the opportunity to engage in meaningful ways with the wide variety of exciting business and career pathways available to them in the county.

Dorset Careers Hub relies on the support of local businesses who want to support the next generation and invest in their local community. If your business might be interested, please explore the opportunities on our Support Young People page.
