Abstract

This study developed and tested ways of enhancing school-based Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) for pre-GCSE pupils and worked towards a whole-school CEIAG strategy in two schools in East London in light of the shift of responsibility for careers work from the local authority to schools themselves. The project focuses particularly on Careers Education, understood as providing the wider context for the one-to-one Careers Advice and Guidance sessions more commonly associated with careers work. The following, based on our experiences in this project, provides summary guidance points for schools and other partners and can be used as a checklist to support schools to develop their CEIAG programmes, although it in no way comprises a comprehensive list of possibilities. More detail can be found in the full report attached. It should be noted that the local authority continues to provide CEIAG in these boroughs, and we are aware that this is not the case in all boroughs nationally, or even within Greater London.
