The policy context for careers: recent changes

p.19


The policy context for careers: concerns

  • Overall availability, consistency and quality of careers provision

  • Adequate funding

  • Levels of awareness in schools about careers and recent changes

  • Sufficient support and guidance available to schools

  • Impartiality of careers services, particularly for vocational options

  • Lack of data about either careers provision or outcomes

  • Suitable monitoring and accountability mechanisms

  • Low prevalence of school-wide and curriculum-led approaches

  • A low priority for schools with little time devoted to careers

  • More complex progression routes for learners

  • International evidence of negative outcomes from similar policies

  • Ownership falls between BIS-DfE, most funding from latter withdrawn

  • Long-term economic, equity and social costs

p.20

nationally representative sample of those

involved in school-based careers work

    (building on the ‘menu’)

  • What age groups receive careers support?

  • What partners are schools working with?


  • Changes inprovision over thelast three years

    p.25


    Careers 2020 Phase TwoWhat is actually happening on the ground?

    Eight recommendations

    1: Schools should have one leader responsible for careers

    2: Schools should have one employer-governor lead on careers

    3: Schools should provide consistent careers support to all learners

    4: Ofsted should explicitly inspect careers

    5: Government should publish open data on careers activities

    6: Government should publish open data on careers outcomes

    7: The NCS should provide all-age careers support

    8: The NCS should co-ordinate careers work locally and nationally
