Good Practice Event

4 November 2009

“It is as if people nowadays embarked on their life journeys without reliable maps, all in private motor cars rather than the trains and buses in which entire classes once travelled together… These “cars” in which individuals travel don’t all have equally powerful engines. …Some have to travel by bicycle or on foot. But everyone has to take risks.”

K Roberts: Youth Employment in Modern Britain


• By 2020 there will be 3 million fewer low skilled jobs in Britain than there are today

• Over 40% of all jobs in 2020 will require a graduate level qualification

• Today’s learners will have more than 10 jobs by age 38

• Britain will need 324,000 more scientists and engineers by 2014

• In the past 10 years there have been 12 jobs created in the knowledge industries for every 1 created elsewhere

The top 10 jobs that will exist in 2010 did not exist in 2004

“Much of the time IAG relies on the ‘matching model’, formulated in the first decade of the 20th century. This model works on the basis that it is possible to identify people’s traits and, from these, careers to which they are suited. Yet people do not necessarily want to be matched. They want to find the information for themselves and talk to people with experience in careers in which they might be interested. They are open to being inspired.”

Skills Commission (2008)

1. Empowers young people to plan and manage their own futures

Schools will meet this principle if young people:

1.1 are able to investigate opportunities for learning and work on their own

1.2 are able to interpret information and to identify partiality and bias

1.3 make challenging but realistic plans for their future learning and work

1.4 recognise barriers to the achievement of their plans and understand how

these can be overcome

1.5 are able to review and adapt their plans in the light of changing personal,

educational, social and economic circumstances

1.6 feed back that they have the skills that they need to plan and manage their careers.
