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:
In the latest statutory guidance from the Department for Education published March 2015 ('Careers Guidance and Inspiration in Schools'), the government emphasises the role that high quality, independent careers guidance plays in helping pupils emerge from school more fully rounded and ready for the world of work.
The duty on schools, to secure independent careers guidance for all year 8-13 pupils, is intended to expand advice and guidance for young people so they are inspired and motivated to fulfil their potential.
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>, IAG Buy-Back, Work Experience 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
