Careers and Enterprise

The Careers and Enterprise Company exists to facilitate a world-class careers education, inspiring and preparing young people for the world of work.
Every young person deserves the best possible start to their working life; to choose their path, fulfil their potential and contribute to a thriving economy. Careers and enterprise education inspires, informs and immerses young people in the ever-changing world of work. Over recent years, we have established the foundations of a new approach to long-standing issues affecting the quality and availability of careers education for young people across England. Our work began with a transformative employer-led programme to connect business with education. Today, we support schools and colleges to deliver world-class careers education, responsive to individual pupil needs and underpinned by the internationally recognised Gatsby Career Benchmarks.


Connexions is impartial information, advice and guidance service which is part of the Skills team at Wolverhampton City Council. We support young people, along with their parents/carers, with making choices in life and making the transition to adulthood. We can work with young people with special education needs and disabilities until the age of 25 and can make referrals to other services after that age. We are client-focused and support our young people with choosing education and training options, developing independence and accessing support to barriers to achievement, exploring jobs and working life, volunteering and work experience, accessing community projects and leisure activities.

Labour market Information

Labour Market Intelligence (LMI) is vital in ensuring students receive careers advice and guidance that reflects an understanding of what business and jobs are available in the local area. LMI should give an understanding of the demographics of the local area as well as key sectors, job trends, key strategic businesses and what opportunities exist within the locality.

The government-funded ‘LMI for All’ service connects and standardises existing national sources of high quality and reliable LMI with the aim of informing careers decisions. This data is made freely available via a single access point for software developers to use in websites and applications to bring the data to life for a range of audiences. It is not a careers website in its own right. The service provides two widgets - Careerometer and Skillsometer - which are free and easy to embed directly onto a school or college website. These widgets have been designed for students (but can be used by others) and provide an easy way to access LMI. The National Careers Service uses this LMI to inform more than 850 job profiles on its website.
