How can a student know what the best route is for their chosen career? asks the Secretary of State
This is part of of Morgans speech to the Association of Colleges. “Over the last few years we have made great steps forward following the trailblazing Wolf Review. However, whilst standards are improving, the system remains confusing and unnecessarily complex.
There are over 13,000 qualifications available to 16- to 18-year-olds.
So I ask you:
How can a student know what the best route is for their chosen career?
How can a student know which qualifications will be most relevant?
How can a student know what will be valued by potential employers?
Simply put: it is very difficult.”
Not so difficult actually. Just make sure that every young person has access to careers guidance from an independent qualified professional careers adviser. Preferably, face to face.
