An Introduction to Careers Leadership in Schools

For once there is huge consensus in the sector - careers education and guidance 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 of CEIAG 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 a recent course: "This went beyond my expectations - very informative and well presented."

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

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.
