THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
Following the release of the Government’s careers strategy, delegates at this seminar will consider the priorities for its implementation, and the implications for key stakeholders - including learners, the education and training sector, employers and local communities.
Delegates will assess opportunities for helping schools to meet the Gatsby Good Career Guidance Benchmarks, how schools and employers might work more effectively together to encourage the development of the skills required to support local economies, and the challenges for improving the availability of careers services for adults.
Further sessions will examine what is needed to support the implementation of the strategy and to meet its key objectives - including promoting technical education as a career route, increasing the number of encounters between pupils and employers, and improving the training and support available to Careers Leaders in schools.
The seminar will bring together policymakers with key stakeholders including schools, representatives of employers and trade associations, careers advisors, universities, FE colleges and training providers, academics, and reporters from the national and trade media.
