This rises to their 18th birthday in summer 2015. Young people will be able to choose how they participate, which could be through: – Full-time education, such as school or college; – an Apprenticeship; – Part-time education or training if they are employed, self employed or volunteering for 20 hours or more a week 3

  12. 12. Education Act 2011•The Education Act 2011 inserts a new duty, section 42A, intoPart VII of the Education Act 1997, requiring schools to secureaccess to independent careers guidance for pupils in years 9-11.(Duty applied to academies through funding agreement with DfE).Intention to consult to extend the duty.•Guidance must be presented in an impartial manner and promotethe best interests of the pupils to whom it is given. Guidanceshould also include information on options available in respect of16-18 education or training, including apprenticeships.•The requirement for schools to provide a programme of careerseducation is repealed. (The removal of this provision does notimply that careers education is unimportant.) 12
  13. 13. All about interpretation…"The new statutory guidance to schools on Section 29 of the Education Act 2011 will underline the new legal duty on schools to secure independent and impartial careers advice and guidance. It will not be sufficient for schools to employ their own careers professional, good though they may be, and then rely on signposting to a website, excellent as that may be. Young people benefit from face-to-face careers guidance. As Lord Hill said in the House of Lords during the passage of the Education Bill, Pupils can benefit enormously from support offered in person that raises their aspirations and leads them onto a successful path." 13
  14. 14. Emerging models The LA continues to offer a service on a subsidised or traded services basis (or a combination of both) Learning providers, schools and academies work together to commission IAG services. Where satisfaction is high, existing provider. Alternatively, a full commissioning process undertaken and the current provider is considered alongside others in a competitive tendering process. Individual schools employ their own adviser or develop internal capacity with links to external and impartial services and agencies. The LA, through it’s commissioning processes, supports the market exploration through providing a list of approved suppliers who meet agreed quality criteria The LA supports schools and academies to explore the free market in independent and impartial IAG. 14
  15. 15. The Barnsley Experience Less about commissioning (get help!), more about analysing need Whole school approach to developing IAG specification…how does it fit with school plans and ethos? Thinking “differently” about what constitutes high quality, independent and impartial IAG Developing internal (school/colleges) and external (partnership) capacity IAG duty becomes an opportunity not an additional burden….. 15
  16. 16. What next?Building blocks: CEIAG programme quality assured against quality award External specialist advice secured from provider with accepted industry standard (matrix) Advisers competent to professional standards Partnership solutions…..share the responsibility and grasp the opportunity………. 16
