framework for careers and work related education
Framework for Careers and Work related Education.
  • The framework is constructed around three main areas of career and work-related learning:
  • Self-development through careers and work-related education
  • Finding out about careers and the world of work
  • Developing skills for career wellbeing and employability
For complete document go to:
  • or
  • Spend 10 minutes looking through the learning outcome statements.
  • Identify those that you already cover and write in the box the activity that works
  • Is there things not included that should be there?
  • 5 minutes feedback
how do we do it all
How do we do it all?
  • Use the new Education Act as an Opportunity for Change.
  • It is up to us to keep the profile of Careers Education high within our institution.
  • Keep our own profile high.
  • If procuring a careers service/ individual, think carefully about what you need and include it in the contract.
  • Ask for help from others:
    • Departments
    • Learning Mentors
    • Tutors
    • Pastoral Staff
    • Parent’s
how do we do it all1
How do we do it all?
  • Work collaboratively – Events/ services are cheaper if the cost is shared.
and finally research
And Finally:Research
  • In an article by Dr Anthony Mann, Director of Research and Policy, Education and Employers Taskforce he states:
    • 26.1% of young people who could recall no contact with employers whilst at school went on to become NEET. This reduced significantly to 4.3% for those who had taken part in four or more activities involving employers (career insights, mentoring, work tasters, work experience etc).
  • The report is careful not to see school-mediated employer engagement as the solution to youth unemployment. It argues that the impacts of young people meeting adults from the world of work and getting insights into careers will be only be optimised within an professional careers advice framework.
