The Careers Strategy 2017 requires all schools and colleges to appoint a Careers Leader. Careers Leaders are responsible for the delivery of a school’s careers programme.
They should be ensuring, amongst other things, that:
- The school has a good careers programme that meets the expectations set out in the Gatsby Benchmarks
- The school's website details its careers programme and has arrangements for providers of technical education or apprenticeships to talk to pupils
- The destinations of young people from the school are tracked and this information is used to improve the effectiveness of the school’s careers programme.
The Careers Leader Training programme supports your school to meet these requirements and meets the Careers Enterprise Company learning outcomes for a Careers Leader training programme. Careers Leaders have the choice to complete a non accredited or an accredited course.
The training is delivered by attendance at four face to face sessions over a period of four months, ongoing support is provided by the use of an individual OneFile account. Learners choosing to complete the accredited course will continue with support of an assessor in their workplace to complete the competency based assessments.
