Career Education: Design, Delivery and Diversity
It is now widely accepted that modern-day schooling must build stronger connections to the world of work. An international evidence-base demonstrates career education makes a positive difference to educational, social and economic outcomes. This greatly benefits individuals, local communities and the wider economy. Together in this webinar, we will explore how best to make career education impactful and innovative for students, teachers, parents/carers, employers/employees and other interested parties i.e. policymakers.

Career education, delivered in a wider range of differing settings, helps to broaden young people’s horizons, raise their aspirations and increase their confidence and motivation to learn. We will examine ways of raising the profile of career education and its added-value benefits.

This webinar will:

1. Examine the international evidence-base underpinning career education, drawing on a robust literature review of quasi-and experimental-quasi studies and other employer engagement studies.
2. Consider the implications for the effective design, delivery and diversity of career education, including at least two UK case studies of theory into practice
3. Discuss ethical and technological considerations that can inform and guide career development policies and practices
4. Explore ways to assess and measure the impact of career education drawing on examples of ‘tried and tested’ toolkits and resources.
