Careers guidance survey 2013 The brief This survey will explore the extent to which all young people up to and including the age of 16 are receiving comprehensive impartial advice and guidance in order to make informed decisions about their options pre- and post-16.
The key questions To what extent have the schools developed and implemented an effective strategy/policy to comply with the statutory duty? To what extent do all pupils in years 9 to 11 receive career guidance? What is the quality of the careers guidance provision? What is the impact of the careers guidance offered in helping young people make informed choices? How well the provision meets the needs of vulnerable groups and the impact on reducing the number of those not in education, employment or training?
What the papers said Thousands are 'denied vital careers advice' Three quarters of schools fail to provide careers advice Career advice in schools is failing pupils, Ofsted warns Ofsted report warns too many schools are failing to give pupils decent careers advice Schools ‘failing to help pupils find good jobs’ Schools failing on careers advice Careers advice is inadequate in most schools Careers advice failing in schools, says Ofsted Three in four schools fail legal duty to provide career advice, Ofsted finds
Going in the right direction? The new arrangements were only working well in one in five of the 60 schools visited.
Going in the right direction? The survey report includes examples of: schools’ investments in careers guidance how one school had been ready to take full responsibility for provision from September 2012 effective large-group or whole-class careers guidance activities key characteristics that defined a good 1:1 interview good practice in promoting careers through links with employers successful quality-assurance approaches.
What the students said they wanted: more information on the full range of courses run by FE colleges and other providers, since not everyone wants to do A levels and go to university a higher profile given to vocational training and apprenticeships to help them make an informed choice visits, presentations or social media pages from former students – one, two, five or even 10 years after they had left the school more purposeful work experience and opportunities to find out about careers from employers better links between subjects and careers better guidance on using the websites.
What the students liked: initial and follow-up individual interviews with a professional careers adviser targeted online activities to explore some of the ideas presented in assemblies a system for recording their ideas and subsequent research a programme of visits from employers and colleges – not just one-off visits a well-stocked careers library, especially for those who felt ill at ease using websites careers guidance as part of the curriculum, especially when the teacher had a good understanding of job opportunities.
