To all Careers Leaders, Enterprise Advisers and others interested in helping to develop the best possible workforce.

An invitation to the annual D2N2 LEP Careers Strategy Showcase

Wednesday 8th May (Alfreton) OR Thursday 9th May (Nottingham)


Attend the event to:

  • Find out from D2N2 LEP why the development of a high quality workforce is crucial to the future prosperity of the region and how it is so dependent upon the education and employment worlds working closely together.
  • Find out from the Careers & Enterprise Company how the careers education programmes in D2N2 compare to the rest of the country.
  • Find out how OFSTED is now inspecting careers programmes.
  • Find out how schools and employers are working effectively together and learn from their practice - whilst also sharing your own ideas.
  • Ask questions of an expert panel.


The Local Enterprise Partnership for Derby and Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire (D2N2) is working with the Careers and Enterprise Company to ensure the National Careers Strategy makes a positive impact right across the region. This will help develop the workforce needed to ensure the D2N2 region thrives over the next 25 years.

D2N2 covers a big area and we believe it is performing as well as any region in the country. We are keen to highlight the impressive activity that is taking place and to show everyone interested in careers education how they might contribute.

I hope that every school and organisation committed to creating the best possible workforce will be able to send at least one representative. The choice of venue does not need to be influenced by the location of the place of work, personal convenience can play a part. Please do everything possible to get along to one of the events. I know you have busy lives but this will certainly be a few hours well spent as it will influence the economic prosperity of the whole region.


Please note that you can attend whichever session is most convenient for you.

The events will take place on:  

Wednesday 8th May at The Hayes Conference Centre, Swanwick, Alfreton, Derbyshire DE55 1AU
