The New Ofsted Framework 2015 - implications for careers learning

The New Ofsted Framework 2015 - implications for careers learning

Monday 15th June 2015

This article was my first impression. I've since written further articles looking at implications for schools

Having now had the time to go through the new Ofsted framework for school inspections I'm happy to report that the new framework more firmly supports the need for quality careers learning

I'll spend some time over the next few days considering how this is likely to affect schools and blog further. In the meantime perhaps you need to update your SLT link, governors and headteacher.

Outstanding

Pupils are exceptionally well prepared for the next stage of their education, training or employment and have attained relevant qualifications. Compared with the national average for all pupils, higher proportions of pupils and of disadvantaged pupils, progress on to a range of higher and further education establishments, apprenticeships, employment or training. These destinations strongly support their career plans.

Good

Pupils are well prepared for the next stage of their education, training or employment and have attained relevant qualifications.

These pupils do so at a level suitable to meet appropriate career plans

Inspectors will consider how well:

learners receive high quality impartial careers guidance that prepares them for their chosen next steps and enables them to make well-informed decisions about their future plans

learners, and groups of learners, progress to the planned next stage in their careers, such as a higher level of education or training, or to employment or an apprenticeship
