The Quality in Careers Standard – The Benefits For Your School, Careers Department and Students (Free Webinar)

23/01/2018 16:00 - 17:00 View

A growing number of institutions already either hold, or are working towards, the single national careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) quality award – the Quality in Careers Standard. The Standard is relevant to all parts of the UK, but there has been a spike in interest, particularly in England since the publication of government recommendations that all schools should work towards the Quality in Careers Standard (DfE Statutory Guidance; updated April 2017). The aim of this webinar is to raise awareness of this unique national quality standard and address the main questions (and concerns) for career professionals about quality award processes – everything from how long it takes to achieve the national award and the choice of awarding body, to costs and what “quality” looks like.
