Careers Advice and Guidance

Careers Advice

and Guidance

Careers Guidance is vital in supporting young people to achieve their aspirations. Ofsted reported in 2013 that “only one in five schools were effective in ensuring that all students were receiving the level of information they needed”.

It is an important and crucial time to incorporate independent careers advice and guidance and work experience as part of the ‘wider careers model’.

We work in line with the statutory guidance from the Department for Education released in March 2015 which states that all registered pupils should have access to independent careers guidance from years 8 to 13. Working effectively with schools, we provide impartial careers advice and guidance to ensure students are fully informed, inspired and prepared for the world of work with clear goals on how to fulfil their potential.

All our careers advisers are qualified to a minimum standard of Level 6 holding the matrix standard.

“Changing Education promised a fresh approach to the endless paperwork and filing that had previously been involved. We weren’t disappointed, the outdated paper-system was replaced by an efficient online programme that was easy to use and kept all the relevant information in a clear format. CONNECT has really changed our working day, we love it!”
