The Careers and Enterprise Company (CEC) have developed Employer Standards which is a free tool for businesses to use to help shape their future workforce.

The Employer Standards for careers education provides a rigorous framework that enables businesses to understand what good careers education outreach looks like. Self-assessing against the framework will enable a business to plan and structure engagement, ask the right questions, connect and share peer expertise and engage effectively with young people in schools, special schools and colleges. It will also allow a business to benchmark themselves against others and access resources to support your progress.

There are 9 Employer Standards in total and completing the assessment will only take you approx. 25 minutes.  95% of employers plan to take action based on their results, with 33% motivated to take action within a month.
