London's Careers Clusters

Updated: Apr 16





There are 12 Careers Clusters in London which work with senior leadership teams in secondary schools and further education colleges to help design high quality careers guidance for pupils.




The purpose of Careers Clusters is to:

  • encourage schools to try different


employer-based activities for pupils

  • help teachers understand London's job opportunities

  • support pupils into work placements and internships

The Careers Clusters have been funded by the European Social Fund and are contract managed by the Education and Skills Funding Agency. Nine of the clusters have a purely geographic focus, working with schools and colleges in particular locations. The other three are also sector-based, focussing on these industry areas:

  • Creative and digital

  • Food and accommodation



  • IT

The clusters have all worked with Project Oracle to achieve Standard 1 validation of their theories of change and evaluation plans.


Career Tree has also submitted an application to establish a Careers Cluster in the London Boroughs of Southwark and Lewisham.
