A Labour amendment to the Education Bill which called for young people to be given access to careers advice was defeated. This means that the predictions about the death of careers advice for young people seem to have been justified. If the government carry on down this route it looks like the responsiblility will rest solely with schools. With no funding and no requirement to deliver school-based careers advice it is difficult to believe that many schools will prioritise this in a serious way.
