Quality in Careers Standard – Virtual Event 2022
Please register below to access our event.
We’re delighted to be able to provide this new opportunity for you to learn more about the national Quality in Careers Standard. Please register below to access the event which is available Now.
The COVID19 pandemic has had a major impact on every aspect of life – and in these still challenging times, we all want to do the best we can to prepare young people for the most uncertain labour market in generations. More than ever, through the best possible careers education and guidance, young people need to be supported to gain the knowledge, skills and confidence to take control of their future learning and work decisions. That’s why the Department for Education in its July 2021 updated Statutory Guidance “strongly recommends” that all secondary schools and colleges should work towards and achieve the Standard. That’s also why the DfE has funded the production of this second Virtual Event for schools and colleges.
The Event is all pre-recorded. It includes an introduction from the Quality in Careers Director, with the opportunity then for you to pick from a series of short pre-recorded videos which will enable you to:
- ‘meet’ each of the 12 Licensed Awarding Bodies and hear about their approach to the delivery of the Standard. You’ll be able to see which Awarding Bodies are operating in your area of the country and access their introductory video – meaning that you won’t need to look at all Awarding Bodies;
- hear from 8 schools and colleges from across the country which have had recent experience of working towards the Quality in Careers Standard (including 3 new recordings of schools who were accredited/reaccredited in the autumn term of 2021 during ongoing COVID19 times). We’ve recorded testimonies from 2 mainstream secondary schools, 2 special schools, an Independent School, a Sixth Form College, and a Further Education College. We also have an audio-visual case study from another secondary school. All of these schools and colleges will tell you about their views on the benefits of working towards and achieving the Standard for their students.
- view the Event at your own pace, so you can visit and revisit at times to suit you.
- follow up after the Event by arranging further discussions with the Awarding Body/Bodies you’d like to speak directly with about embarking upon the national Standard.
