Westminster Employment Forum

The future for careers education, advice and guidance in England for schools and for adults

December 2015

Delegates at this seminar discussed the further steps that can be taken to improve the standard of careers advice and guidance in England.
The seminar followed the Education Select Committee's inquiry on Careers guidance for young people, which examined concerns that many young people are not being provided with access to independent and expert careers professionals.
Delegates heard from the new Careers and Enterprise Company on their plans, intended to help bring together schools and employers, in order to provide inspiration and enterprise education to pupils. Further sessions considered the future for careers advice in the digital age and career development challenges for adults.
The conference also included a guest of honour address from Sam Gyimah MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Childcare and Education, Department for Education on the government's vision for careers education.
The seminar brought together key policymakers with stakeholders including school and college leaders, careers advisers, universities, representatives of employers and industry groups, think-tanks, academics and others with an interest in these important issues.
