GOVERNORS SHOULD SUPPORT PUPILS ASPIRATIONS – AND CHECK ON CAREERS ADVICE ACCORDING TO NEW FRAMEWORK

New  Governors Framework says  CEIAG must be  provided to pupils and  governors should  check on   pupils’  destinations

Governors should have a role in support of pupils aspirations according to a new ‘  ‘Framework for Governance’ published by the NGA and Wellcome Foundation . Under the heading ‘Future Aspirations for Pupils‘  the Framework says:

‘Pupils with high aspirations are more likely to go on to university, apprenticeships and other forms of further education or training, leading to rewarding and successful careers. They are also more likely to work hard to achieve their aspirations and therefore reach their full potential academically.’ Checking on careers guidance and where pupils end up is also part  of good governance according to the Framework.

Evidence:

  • Careers information, advice and guidance delivered to pupils and feedback from this
  • Pupil surveys
  • (Secondary) Proportion applying for degree programmes at universities (including elite universities), vocational programmes at colleges and apprenticeships
  • (Secondary) Number of former pupils not in education, employment, or training (NEET)

Note- A recent survey by the CDI and Careers England  in secondary schools  suggests  that careers guidance remains  patchy across schools  and most advice  is being given by teachers without the  appropriate  QCF Level 6 qualification ( ie as recommended in Statutory Guidance)
