Embedding the Good Career Guidance benchmarks in schools and colleges

Embedding the Good Career Guidance benchmarks in schools and colleges

Good career guidance has never been more important. Changes in technology, the technical education system and in the labour market mean that the jobs available and the skills and qualifications needed to reach them are changing all the time. The COVID-19 pandemic has added further disruption, with a disproportionate impact on young people as they enter the labour market. Many skilled jobs require specific education and training, and young people need more support to make better-informed decisions about their future.

Piloting the Good Career Guidance benchmarks

Piloting the Good Career Guidance benchmarks

After the publication of Sir John Holman's Good Career Guidance Report, which first set out the eight benchmarks of good practice, we began working with the North East Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) to pilot the framework in 16 schools and colleges of varying sizes, Ofsted ratings and types, including a Pupil Referral Unit. The pilot challenged the 16 institutions to work towards all eight benchmarks over two years, with an evaluation tracking the impact of this activity for two further years until autumn 2019.
