Helping you meet your statutory duties around careers education advice and guidance
Recent figures from the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) and Department for Education have shown that, in the eyes of employers, the value of academic qualifications are decreasing, with businesses placing increased attention on skills and competencies.
The government has made delivery of a holistic career programme statutory in secondary schools and colleges. Careers education is not currently statutory in primary schools but numerous research projects have identified the need to start early to avoid stereotypes becoming entrenched.
Schools and colleges in Hackney have been well supported to deliver their careers programmes by The Careers Collaborative. They can find out about the best free opportunities for their pupils, take advantage of offers from our partners, share good practice and keep up to date on statutory requirements. We are now making this available to other London schools.
