Ofsted update on careers guidance

Ofsted has recently clarified how it will report on careers guidance. Please read the update about the expectations for secondary schools in relation to careers information, advice and guidance, the ‘Baker Clause’ and how this will be reflected in inspection reports (paragraphs 256-259). From September many of your contacts may ask for advice on this.

This has been the most challenging year schools, colleges and all of us working in education have experienced. We know this is another piece of work being added to your to-do list, but the CEC hope they’ve been able to provide a helpful summary of the changes that the Department for Education are making
