Charlton School

Good career guidance has never been more important. Changes in technology and in the labour market mean that increasing numbers of jobs require specific education and training, yet career guidance in English schools has often been criticised for being inadequate and patchy.

By publishing information for schools, developing tools to encourage the use of the Good Career Guidance benchmarks, and encouraging the use of labour market information (LMI) and pupil destination data, we are working with partners to support schools and colleges to implement the benchmarks and improve career advice and guidance for all young people.
