Presenter - Michele Squire


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 to the choice of awarding body and costs. The session will also address:  • Why an institution would commit staff time and finance resources to achieving the national quality award for their careers provision. • How the quality award framework helps any learning provider to develop effective good practice. • What the main expectations are, and what “quality” looks like.
