The North East Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) is seeking to appoint an organisation that can design and deliver a range of career-related learning resources as part of the North East Ambition element of the Strategic Economic Plan.

North East Ambition is focused on supporting all North East schools to achieve the Good Career Guidance Benchmarks by 2024.

The project builds on the success of the original Good Career Guidance Benchmark Pilot that took place between 2015 and 2017 in 16 of the region’s secondary schools and colleges. This pilot was recognised as transformational and led the way for a new approach to careers guidance in England, outlined in the DfE’s Careers Strategy, which was launched in December 2017.

The North East LEP is determined that our North East primary schools will be at the forefront of national development for developing a similar framework suitable for all primary schools in England.

The successful company will need to deliver high quality video materials and accompanying resources to be used in a range of primary settings across the region. The project will include:

· Working with two clusters of schools to create resources and templates of best practice to support the transition from primary school to secondary school from a careers perspective.

· Working with a school and employers to create short videos showcasing key employment sectors from the point of view of primary aged children.

The work will take place over the remainder of the academic year and the chosen partner will need to demonstrate their ability to create and compile best practice careers education resources, predominantly within a primary setting. Submissions should be no more than two pages in length and submitted by 12:00 noon on Monday 30 November. For more information about the project proposal and how to submit, please click here.
