Sussex Learning Network is a partnership of further education colleges, universities, local authorities and local enterprise agencies. Through working together, we aim to enable all young learners in the region to access, participate in and progress through to higher-level education, with a view to transforming lives and providing skilled workers for the region’s economy. We do this through:
We work together to create a strategic approach to further education and economic growth across Sussex, as well as a wider range of opportunities for learners.
We develop, secure funding for and deliver a variety of innovative projects with the help of our training provider and career guidance partners.
We provide learning resources, such as our case studies and toolkits, and opportunities for career practitioners to upskill and share good practice.
We commission research on the local labour market, seek to influence government policy, and provide news and commentary on developments across the sector.
Shining a spotlight on the importance of high-quality careers education, 2021's National Careers Week (NCW) starts on Monday 1st March.
NCW’s first virtual careers fair offers students, teachers, advisers and parents/carers a great opportunity to explore future educational and employment options. It also provides a chance for employers from key sectors and around the globe to engage with students and promote their career and training opportunities through daily themes, videos, downloadable resources and more.
