In 2018 the YNYER LEP was successful in a bid to manage a York and North Yorkshire Career Hub of 35 schools across York and North Yorkshire, in conjunction with managing schools in the wider network and those in the Opportunity Area of Scarborough.

The purpose of the Hub is to work with schools and colleges who have a shared vision of how they will work together to improve outcomes for the young people in their area. The Hub links these schools and colleges with employers, Further Education establishments, apprenticeship- and other providers to help them make progress against the Gatsby Benchmarks and improve outcomes for young people. The Hub is expected to have an impact on the speed and scale of achievements thus better preparing young people for the economic challenges they will face in the future.
