Sam Gyimah MP the Minister responsible for Careers Guidance in schools said in the Commons on 7 March that “The missing piece in careers advice and guidance was employer interaction, and that is what the excellent Careers & Enterprise Company is setting up. As part of its strategy, it is rolling out enterprise advisers, and 30 local enterprise partnerships have signed up to be part of that. Every school will have an enterprise co-ordinator to link it to the world of work.” Given that all the government’s efforts and resources on careers have recently gone into investing in more employer engagement, isn’t there now grounds for thinking that the ‘missing piece in careers advice and guidance’ is access to independent, impartial advice from a qualified professional, and of course, face to face advice for the most disadvantaged students? ? Indeed, are there any resources left now for this missing piece?
