New support for schools’ duty to deliver careers guidanceBy CASCAiD on 29 May 2012, 14:34pm | Guides & Whitepapers
This September, secondary schools in the UK have a new legal duty to deliver impartial careers guidance to their students. The Department for Education (DfE) has outlined their key responsibilities and has stressed the importance of helping students to make well informed choices about education, training and career options. Loughborough University company, CASCAiD, helps schools implement careers guidance that supports the success of their students. Producers of the already popular careers tool, Kudos, for over 20 years, the company plans to release a new version this June.
“We are aware that schools are facing a challenging time with the new duty to deliver careers guidance alongside the introduction of new destination measures and Raising the Participation Age - with reduced levels of support. When we developed the new version of Kudos, we knew it was paramount to incorporate features that would help schools meet the requirements of their new statutory duty but also to provide students with a high quality tool that was in their best interest” said Lynda Lacey, Chief Executive of CASCAiD.
