National Survey of School Leaders and Careers Professionals

16 12.19

Researched and presented by dmh associates with the support of NAHT and Careers England, the report  shows that despite schools now recognising the vital importance of careers provision they are unable to deliver this due to a lack of funding: Only 10% have adequate funding; 75% have insufficient, limited or no funding.

The report also highlights around a 5th of secondary schools receive less than £2K in funding per annum. Given average size of secondary school is 1000 this equates to circa £2 per student - less than the cost of purchasing a cup of coffee! About a third of secondary schools receive less than £5k per annum - £5 per students.  Yet 84% of schools “strongly agree” or “agree” that careers provision in their schools is now a high priority.
