Careers education: self-evaluation checklist
Careers education is an area of key importance for secondary schools. Despite the duty to provide careers education, it has often been approached in a half-hearted fashion.
It's important to remember that:
- careers education is about aspiration as much as advice
- information is widely available, so advice should be accompanied with coaching and motivation
- the best mentoring and motivation comes from people in jobs: employers, schools and colleges must do more in partnership together
- careers last a lifetime so a high level of education is crucial.
