Careers Hive

What is Careers Hive?

Launched in February 2016, Careers Hive is an immersive careers education event designed to give students in S1-S3 a new way to think about their futures. It highlights the opportunities available to those who study STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and maths), as well as the cross-disciplinary skills and subjects that can support and enhance STEM careers.

Careers Hive receives a large volume of interest every year from schools across the country.  As it is a guided and immersive experience, capacity is limited during the week. In addition, a number of our funders have specific criteria attached to their support, often around tackling inclusion and promoting access across a range of geographic areas and socio-economic groups.  For this reason we work closely with a number of local authorities and schools that are targeted by some of these partners which can mean a delay in confirming spaces.
