Schools and colleges should have a strategic overview of a student’s journey and should have in place a scheme of learning which is underpinned by inspirational encounters and activities which actively challenge stereotypes and raise aspirations.
Each student is an individual with a wide range of influences. Young people often have a world view that limits their career decision making capacity. Careers leaders should seek to delivering a programme of learning and encounters that cuts through all of this ‘noise’ and helps ALL students, regardless of their backgrounds or additional needs, make informed choices.
Gatsby recommends that Careers Leaders use systematic recording to monitor and ensure all students are actively included within the careers plan and ideally that students themselves are able to access these records to help them take responsibility for their own learning.
