During the webinar, Deirdre reflects on energising people to achieve the Gatsby Benchmarks and ensure career development among young people so they are able to understand the rapidly changing labour market. Deirdre also looks into the marketisation of career support and stimulating the market of careers to bring innovation and growth.
