Impacts case study
Our report and Committee of Public Accounts evidence session concluded that despite many different approaches over the years, most young people do not receive the careers advice they need. We recommended the Department for Education reconsider how it could help improve advice provided by schools and colleges. Others – including Ofsted, the Education Select Committee, the Sutton Trust, employers, and schools and colleges – echoed this view.
What are impacts?
Informed by this range of evidence, in 2014 the Secretary of State for Education announced the creation of a new independent careers and enterprise company to broker relationships between employers and schools and colleges so that young people are inspired and receive the guidance they need for success in working life.
