Tips to enhance your careers guidance provision

Careers guidance
With the recent criticism of careers guidance in schools, award-winning careers advisor Susan Burke, who runs a free resource for teachers and students, offers her tips on enhancing your careers provision.


If you type the word “careers” into Google you will find roughly 1,190,000,000 results. So, although the internet is great for finding information, too much information can be just as much of an issue as having too little – and this is one of the problems our students have been facing. 

Furthermore, in light of the government’s move to cut Connexions funding and pass the duty to deliver careers advice for students on to schools, I believe that careers provision has become fragmented and unequal in the UK – the report from the Education Select Committee earlier this year and Ofsted’s careers report last week only go to confirm this.
