What is the CareerTech Challenge Prize?

Our Innovator Handbook has everything you need to know to enter the Prize.

Equipped with the right knowledge, people can plan for secure and rewarding future careers. People need to be able to understand the jobs and skills which are likely to be in demand, and the pathways to attain them.

We are looking for solutions that combine innovative uses and sources of information about the labour market to help people navigate their future careers. The information, advice and guidance provided should support people working in roles most susceptible to change due to automation.

Entries are open to any individual, organisation and group based in the UK, or who have a lead partner based in the UK.
