The Careers & Enterprise Fund was set up to ensure that all young people are given multiple encounters with the fast-changing world of work.

In the Careers & Enterprise Fund 2018 (CEF2018) £4.2 million of investment is allocated focusing on geographical areas of need and targeting the most disadvantaged young people. The fund is split in two parts.

Part A - Employer Encounters: £2.5 million in programmes selected by schools and colleges in 35 areas of need. The schools and colleges will be offered access to ‘virtual wallets’ to make these selections.

  • £1.25 million will be invested in 10 Careers Hubs
  • £1.25 million will be invested in 25 areas of disadvantage

Part B - Disadvantaged groups:  £1.7 million will be invested for disadvantaged groups, identified by the Department for Education, to understand how to most effectively support these young people. The groups of focus are:

  • Young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND)
  • Children in care and care leavers
  • Gypsy, Roma and traveller young people
