In our experience, great careers guidance and advice does not just come from employer engagement and meeting other providers of educational and training pathways.  This is not the same as Impartial Personal Careers Guidance.

Important as employer engagement by schools is, and engagement with other organisations that go into schools to talk about occupational, educational or training pathways, they cannot provide everything a student needs to make an informed choice. Employers, training providers and colleges do not usually have the right skills or knowledge base to provide Personal Careers Guidance in an impartial way.

When the DfE published its Statutory Guidance ‘Careers Guidance and Access for Education and Training Providers’  in 5 Jan 2018 it highlighted a need for change.  This follows the Government’s Careers Strategy published in December 2017 The need for a new careers strategy was backed by several recent studies that found the current state of careers education and guidance to be inconsistent in delivery.

There was a clear timetable for implementation, including the expectation that every school is meant to be using the Gatsby benchmarks to improve career provision and the ambition was to ensure that these benchmarks were fully met by the end of 2020.
