National Conference on Careers Work in Schools


Every year David Andrews organises a two-day conference for careers leaders in schools and for advisers and consultants working with schools.  This year’s event is in on 16 & 17 November, in York.  Keynote speakers include me! In addition there will be presentations from Claudia Harris (The Careers & Enterprise Company) and Professor Wendy Hirsh who will be talking about what’s really happening in the labour market.  The programme also includes updates on national developments, case studies of good practice and a workshop on evaluating impact.

Residential and day delegate options are available.  It is well worth booking a place if you can (see link below).

Conference: Careers work schools and colleges: ensuring the best practice for young people

I have been asked to speak at David Andrew’s annual careers education conference. It isn’t until 20th and 21st November so this counts as advanced notice. Nonetheless, well worth getting in before it sells out.

The conference will seek

  1. To examine developments in 14-19 education and training and their implications for CEG.
  2. To consider how the internet has both changed career and opened up new approaches to careers work with young people.
  3. To re-examine the interface between education and the world of work, and how to make best use of employers and LMI.
  4. To explore how careers professionals can work together, through the professional institute to ensure best practice.
  5. To provide opportunities for delegates to exchange practice and to network with colleagues in similar roles across England.

As well as me you will find Professor Jenny Bimrose (Deputy Director, Institute for Employment Research, University of Warwick), Karen O’Donoghue (President, CDI) and John Thompson (Principal Adviser 14-19, York City Council and Chair of LEACAN, The 14+ National Network) all speaking.
