and The Quality in Careers Standard
Case Studies of Best Practice Around The Country
This section of the website hosts a series of case studies which schools and colleges have agreed we should make accessible as a means of showing how some of the good schools and colleges in the country are responding to the revised statutory duty to secure access to independent careers guidance.
Before reading the case studies, it is worth reminding ourselves what the OECD definition of 'careers guidance' covers, as this is referred to by the Department for Education in its guidance on what the statutory duty includes:
"Career guidance refers to services and activities intended to assist individuals, of any age and at any point throughout their lives, to make educational, training and occupational choices and to manage their careers.
The activities may take place on an individual or group basis, and may be face-to-face or at a distance (including help lines and web-based services)."
In this context, each case study includes not only narrative explaining the approach taken by the institution (including its approach to quality assurance), but also contact details for potential follow-up.
We are always looking for further case studies to showcase positive implementation of the revised statutory duty.
If you know of a school or college that you think we should contact about a potential case study, please make contact with us by mailing directly to Paul Chubb (QiCS Director) via pac at qualityincareers dot org dot uk or by completing our contact us form.
