Securing independent careers guidance: Information for further education colleges on the new requirement to provide students with independent careers guidance

Department for Education and Department for Business, Innovation & Skills guidance (DFE-00080-2013) for further education colleges

Detail (from press release)

Following a public consultation in 2012 on extending access to careers guidance, all further education (FE) colleges and sixth-form colleges will be subject to a new requirement to provide access to independent careers guidance from September 2013. This is being introduced alongside an extension of the age range of the existing careers duty on schools to years 8 to 13 and will form part of FE college and sixth-form college funding agreements.

This document offers guidance that your college may wish to draw on when interpreting the new requirement and deciding on the most appropriate forms of independent and impartial careers guidance and other kinds of careers support for your students.
