National Careers Week

By FLcs 03 Mar 2021

What is National Careers Week?

National Careers Week runs from the 1st to the 6th of March 2021 and aims to promote the importance of good careers education in schools, colleges and universities. Also, National Careers Week is the celebration of careers guidance and free resources in education across the UK. The aim is to provide a focus for careers guidance activity at an important stage in the academic calendar to help support young people leaving education.

Careers Week also aims to encourage education providers to bring together students, local employers and advisers through careers events and activities. During National Careers Week it is up to every school, academy and college to offer careers advice and guidance to their students.

The career spectrum presents a huge importance in a student’s life since the first educational programmes that have been implemented. The university has the role of creating academic and professional pathways which lead to certain functions of the society being fulfilled. An individual’s personal goals may find their way to fulfilment through constant learning, constant focus on the changes that the market-sphere of that field manifests and a consistent involvement in the activities and programmes that the university or other entities are offering.

What is its role?

National Career Week has the purpose to connect students to the possible jobs that they may want to undertake at the end of their degree. It is also a chance for the students to engage with important job providers and to work for setting up a new course for the society they are living. The National Careers Week reminds us of the significant role that we play in the future of the community we live in.

Finding the right career??

Finding the right career is a challenge that most of students may find overwhelming. Only by connecting the skills which we gathered throughout our academic journey with the marketspace that our field grants us a student can achieve the professional fulfilment which is rooted for.

In order to be prepared to convert the academic experience into valuable professional assets we must build a plan which has as a principal focus serving those around us by engaging our skills and capabilities.

As we notice, a student may find helpful being engaged into programmes and job fairs that expose the career choice spectrum into a constructive manner. Be aware that platforms like LinkedIn may play a huge part in shaping your career journey: the job providers are presenting their offers through career fairs and the potential employees have the chance to engage in meaningful contact with them.


To summarise, not only does the university set up the basic academic knowledge, but also it plays its part into the interaction of the students with the career opportunities providers – in order for them to become valuable elements of the society. The skills that the market requests according to an “on-demand basis” are developed by the educational set ups and programmes which the university promotes.
