£4 million pledge to ensure every school has a named careers leader by the start of the 2018-19 academic year

DfE today (5 Jan) updated their statutory guidance for schools on providing careers guidance and inspiration.

The Government’s careers strategy , published on 4 December 2017, sets out a long term plan to build a world class careers system that will help young people and adults choose the career that is right for them, pledging £4 million to ensure every school has a dedicated careers leader by the start of the 2018-19 academic year.

The statutory guidance has been updated to expand on the aim set out in the strategy to make sure that all young people in secondary school get a programme of advice and guidance that is stable, structured and delivered by individuals with the right skills and experience.

The careers strategy sets out that that every school needs a Careers Leader who has the energy and commitment, and backing from their senior leadership team, to deliver the careers programme across all eight Gatsby Benchmarks. Every school will be asked to name this Careers Leader.

This requirement will be introduced in September 2018, by when more information and support will be made available.
