Careers Education, Information and Guidance in Schools for Governors (CEIAG)
Governors of 11-16 and 11-19 maintained schools, academies and local authority PRUs, particularly those with responsibility for Careers Education Information Advice and Guidance (CEIAG).
Outline of event:
The new Careers Strategy: making the most of everyone's skills and talents, was released in December 2017 with accompanying guidance for schools and FE and Sixth Form Colleges published in January and February 2018. New measures, funding & duties will be in place for the 2018/2019 school year, including putting in place a dedicated careers leader. With a renewed government focus on careers advice, now is the time for school & college leaders to ensure they have the high-quality careers programme envisaged & required by the strategy.
Following the session last term for careers leaders which was well received and well attended, the Education and Skills Partnership are putting on a Governors CPD Session on 27th June 2018. The session will include an up to date brief and the opportunity to hear good practice about a number of local secondary schools and others that have achieved the Humber Gold Standard (recently licensed to the National Quality in Careers Standard - QiCS).
Schools should have a strategy for the careers guidance they provide to young people, embedded within a clear framework linked to outcomes for pupils.
This session will examine the statutory duty in relation to careers guidance, key principles for good careers guidance and share good practice in relation to developing a school strategy for advice and guidance.
This event will take place at County Hall - 7.00pm - 9.00pm
Learning and Teaching Outcomes:
Attendance will support and enable participants to:
Understand the statutory duty, the responsibilities of schools and the role of the governing body.
Understand the statutory duty, responsibilities and role of the Local Authority in identifying and supporting vulnerable young people, including those with special educational needs and those at risk of not participating post-16, and the services that are available to support them.
Identify the key principles of good careers guidance and an effective careers strategy including ways of measuring the effectiveness of careers activities.
Increase awareness of the wide range of activities that can inspire young people including employer links, work experience, employability passports.
Increase awareness of some of the tools, resources and external organisations that can support CEIAG in schools, including those provided by the Local Authority e.g. >log on | move on> and Labour Market Information.
Increase awareness of national and local developments, quality standards and good practice in relation to CEIAG including the Humber Gold Standard.
We expect that all CPD will involve integral evaluation processes
