Can you say you’re up-to-date with your CEIAG duties?
Do you want to achieve OUTSTANDING at your next Ofsted?
Staying ahead of the rapidly changing landscape of careers inspiration, aspiration and provision isn’t an easy process Under the new Common Inspection Framework that comes into effect in September 2015, It was made clear that careers learning is receiving a much higher priority that it had previously. The ability of your school to deliver impartial and effective career learning experiences for all pupils in years 8-13 impacts not just one reporting area, Effectiveness of Leadership and Management, but now a second area. Personal Development, Behaviour & Welfare. Some of the pupil outcomes are now based around careers learning objectives. If you can’t face scouring the documents for the relevant information you may find my synopsis blog useful . Even Ofsted retweeted my comments.
REMEMBER – If you have a sixth form you can’t get a good or outstanding rating if your KS4 careers provision isn’t up to scratch.

No? I wouldn’t be surprised, not many have the time and that is why you need Outstanding Careers: experts and specialists in providing cost effective support, consultancy and bespoke training should be your first port of call for support.
Careers education is the lynchpin for school improvement – pupils are motivated when they know what they want to achieve in their lives and how to go about it. The old model of careers being a couple of CV lessons and an interview in year 11 is gone. It’s now much more cross curricular and can no longer rely on just one person to deliver it. It’s a whole range of activities and strategies both inside the classroom and out. I’d urge you to ask yourself the following questions
- Do you think your pupils have REALISTIC & AUDACIOUS aspirations?
- Do you feel they’ve considered ALL the opportunities?
- Do your teachers & support staff have the necessary skills to support your pupils in making these choices?
You now have a duty to provide pupils with information about ALL career pathways.
Do your teachers know about apprenticeships, foundation degrees, work based learning? That is why you need Outstanding Careers.
