I’ve been doing some work in schools in Kent. I think that there is some evidence that a new model of career education and guidance is beginning to emerge across the county. I’m going to be presenting this back to some of the schools in Kent today. I’d be interested to hear what people think about this.
The essence of what I’m calling the “Kent Model” is (1) a strong countywide infastructure to support the development of career education and guidance (2) a committment by the schools to build an internal infastructure (notably through the employment of a full-time careers co-ordinator).
Is the “Kent Model” also appearing in other counties? If so with what sort of regularity?
