Career Tech Challenge

Career Tech Challenge

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.

The CareerTech Challenge Prize will provide £1.2 million and tailored packages of expert support for the development of digital solutions which improve career information, advice and guidance. Solutions will combine innovative uses and sources of labour market information to make high-quality, localised advice and guidance more accessible.

We want to support people to imagine their future careers and find out how to get there.

Nesta Challenges invites those with an interest in ‘future-proofing’ the workforce to propose digital solutions to improve access to the information and guidance people need to pursue fulfilling careers.

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

The solutions should benefit employed adults in England who are aged over 24 years, without a qualification at degree level and earning less than £35,000 per year, with a focus on those in roles likely to significantly change or shrink.

Prize Statement

The Prize Statement is our call to action to innovators. It articulates the Prize’s aims and what we want entries to deliver, without predetermining what the solutions should look like. Finalists and, eventually, our winner will be selected on the basis of how well they meet the Prize Statement.

The £1.2 million CareerTech Challenge Prize is looking for digital solutions that use labour market information to support people to make better-informed decisions about their future careers. Solutions should generate actionable insights, be easy to use and proactively reach out to users. 

The solutions should benefit employed adults in England who are aged over 24 years, without a qualification at degree level and earning less than £35,000 per year, with a focus on those in roles likely to significantly change or shrink.
