I’ve just published an article in the Huffington Post.
Over the weekend, Tristram Hunt, the shadow Education Secretary, was grandstanding on career guidance. According to Hunt, we need to do something about the aspirations of young women “girls can be taught they can be architects or they can be engineers or they can be doctors, beginning at primary school”. Hunt, is right, or at least partially right, career education in England’s schools isn’t good enough. However, this is true for both girls and boys and at primary and secondary level.
