The evidence base in career guidance


Adventures in Career Development

Last week I was invited to the Department for Education to talk to various civil servants and people involved in the new careers company. I was rather pleased to be invited. It seems that a wind of change is sweeping through the DfE and that career guidance (and with it me) are once more back in favour.

What I tried to do was to give a potted summary of the evidence base in career guidance and to touch upon some of the key issues that look like they might be important for the new careers company e.g. employer engagement in schools and e-portfolios. I hope it was helpful and that policy continues to move in a more evidence based direction.

This is what I said

The evidence base in career guidance.
