DfE today (4 Dec) published the government’s plan for raising the quality of careers provision in England.

The careers strategy is part of the government’s plan to make Britain fairer, improve social mobility and offer opportunity to everyone.

Anne milton100x100The Rt Hon Anne Milton MP, Minister of State for Apprenticeships and Skills and Minister for Women, said:

"We want to create a stronger, fairer society in which people from all backgrounds can realise their potential. A thriving careers system, that is accessible to everyone, is at the heart of our focus on social mobility. We must break down the barriers to progress that too many people in our country face today, and give young people the skills to get on in life. Our careers strategy will support everyone, whatever their age, to go as far as their talents will take them and have a rewarding career.

"Our careers provision must be world class to help people understand the range of opportunities available to them in today’s economy and acquire the skills and qualifications they need to succeed in the workplaces of the future. But for too long, careers guidance has not been given the status it deserves. This strategy sets out our ambitions and plans to expand the quality and quantity of provision. We want to transform the careers system so that everyone can benefit from support of the highest calibre.

"Our modern Industrial Strategy is about building a Britain fit for the future by investing in the development of skills to meet the changing needs of business, increase productivity and drive growth across the whole country. High-quality careers support will allow us to promote new world class technical education and make sure people know where their qualifications lead. We will increase participation in higher level qualifications, with clear routes so that people know how to progress to that level. It is vital, in an environment where new industries are emerging and many of the most important jobs of the future don’t yet exist, that individuals have access to high-quality labour market information and earnings data to underpin their choices.

"Raising the quality of careers provision requires a truly national effort. This strategy sets out what more we can do as a Government. But there is a crucial role for others too. Employers, including those who are self-employed, have an important part to play if we are to succeed in our ambition to support individuals to grow and develop. This document sets out the Government’s plan for achieving just that – working closely with careers organisations and careers professionals, schools, colleges, universities, employers and others in the sector."
