An Introduction to Careers Leadership in Schools

27/06/2018 09:30 - 16:00 View

For once there is huge consensus in the sector - CEIAG is changing and the new curriculum acknowledges the need for a new role, that of the career leader. In England responsibility for careers guidance for young people has been transferred to individual schools. At the same time, there has been a growth in the number of organisations offering support to schools. For all the components to be brought together into a coherent programme there needs to be clear leadership from within the school. Consultant and writer David Andrews, will explain the breadth of the role; quality assuring a careers strategy for the school; managing the delivery of careers education and IAG; networking with external partners and coordinating the contributions of careers teachers and wider school team. Feedback from the last course: "Met my need and exceeded my expectations" · 'Recommended to those new to the post & those who have been careers leaders for years very good to clarify role' · "David was a fantastic trainer with a wealth of experience and knowledge within careers" · 'Informative, engaging and relevant.'
