Every pupil should have opportunities for guidance interviews with a Careers Adviser, who could be internal (a member of school staff) or external, provided they are trained to an appropriate level. These should be available whenever significant study or career choices are being made. They should be expected for all pupils but should be timed to meet their individual needs.
Every student should have at least one guidance interview by the age of 16, and the opportunity for a further interview by the age of 18.
Careers guidance activities can include:
>> Find out what arrangements the school has put in place for a student’s personal guidance
>> Work with the school and the Careers Adviser to ensure personal guidance connects to other careers interventions
>> Work with the school to ensure students are prepared to benefit from employer encounters and experiences of work
>> Encourage students to make best use of the personal guidance on offer
