Key question Liz., thank you.

Russell George

Good afternoon everyone, what tactics have you found most successful to get young people and their parents & carers to engage with all of these brilliant online resources and videos? It can be very dispiriting to spend time on a wealth of resources only to see very small click or view counts. Thank you.
Jasmine Morton
48:40
All interesting so far, thanks! How many careers advisers do you have on your teams? And how do you divide responsibility amongst them?
Julia Bond
49:41
Not sure Jamie's slides are being shared......
Ruth Bennetts
50:21
Good point about how important it is to embed careers into the academic subjects as well Jamie.
Munya
53:12
Wonderful stuff Jamie. 1)Are there cross curricula careers activities/events for academic and vocational areas to enable students to appreciate variety of job roles in sectors? 2) What are your views regards college staff CPD sessions supported by industry partners; could be Lecture/Tutor experiences of work?
Rob Cremona
53:13
A question for any/all presenters: how has the shift away from face to face careers events due to Covid affected your engagement with parents/carers? Have things got better/worse or changed?
Frances Jenkins
53:25
What tools do providers use to monitor and evaluate the impact of their careers provision to ensure that it meets both the needs of their learners and the needs of industry?
Rose Hiron-Grimes
55:53
I love the idea of a festival of events.
Ruth Bennetts
56:18
so do I Rose!
Ruth Bennetts
56:51
It is a community based project as well? So reaching out to families as well?
Jan Champney
56:55
Did you deliver a virtual version of Up this year?
Sarah Bennett
59:26
What was the virtual platform used called? (missed the name)
Andrew Webster
01:04:41
thanks for all of your questions so far - please do keep them coming in and we'll address these in the Q/A slot...
Sarah Stocking
01:05:33
What portal do Hartpury use for their student portfolios and recording WEX?
Rose Hiron-Grimes
01:06:29
For colleges that operate across a range of campuses, I was wondering how you ensure an equality of provision? Especially if subject areas, timetables, staffing and overall culture at each site is very different.
Andrew Russell
01:08:03
Is anyone using tracking software for careers and WEX? We have looked at Grofar, Changing Education (Connect) and Navigate. Has anyone got any opinions on these?
Catherine Sezen
01:09:23
Any thoughts on Andrew's question on software?
Martina Greeves
01:09:26
@Simon what platform/tool did you use for your career fair?
tim moody
01:09:26
We are piloting Navigate and so far feedback is good. It also allows students to take ownership and upload their own careers/enterprise ecounters
Fiona Doughton
01:10:31
Unifrog is also used by two of the colleges in our area
Ruth Bennetts
01:11:01
UniFrog and Careerpilot is used a lot in Cornwall.
Celeste Indge
01:12:03
How do you facilitate meaningful encounters with other Further Education providers?

Simon Spooner
01:12:28
Hartpury utilises Grofar platform, but we utilise a lot of the Export data functions to support Tutors and Students in making the most of the activities offered.
Andrew Webster
01:13:44
next issue of Connect to also highlight some important research work around Careers Leadership in Colleges!
Liz Wyman
01:15:11
We use Connect and aspects of ProMonitor.
Andrew Russell
01:15:25
What are your ratios Level 6 Careers Advisors to students?
Celeste Indge
01:17:22
Do you include the IAG given by personal advisor, rather than L6, in your BM8 figures?
Jan Champney
01:17:52
How do you interpret BM8 in terms as this is a question which is reoccurring at the moment
Ben Knocks
01:18:24
To any of the presenters - how do you encourage or embed careers into a tutor's role? How do you ensure they don't just say 'that's for the careers advisors?'
Jan Champney
01:18:30
in terms of every student accessing a 1-2-1 guidance interview
Jamie Crowle
01:18:34
We don't count CEIAG offered by anyone other than L6 advisors towards GB8. We aren't at 100% on that benchmark.
Celeste Indge
01:19:49
What % students actually have 1:1 with a L6?
Andrew Webster
01:19:55
just to reassure you that we can save the chat and come back to colleagues if questions can't be covered now...
Jamie Crowle
01:20:04
Ben, all of our tutors are expected to complete half term 1:1s to review progress and set targets which are recorded and feed into progress reports which go to department leaders and also to parents/carers.
Ben Knocks
01:20:23
Thanks Jamie
Martina Greeves
01:20:35
