Sadly now no longer being updated but David Winter’s blog is still a treasure trove for anyone studying any Careers qualification or interested in learning more about Careers theory.

Also now no longer being updated this was the blog that started me thinking I should write a blog (that’s right, blame HER). It’s neat and tidy and packed to brim with full of useful information, links and thoughts. It made me think that a similar blog, but aimed at careers workers working with a younger age group, might work.

One of the most vital blogs for career theory and policy updates. Tristram has been a leading policy and research voice in the sector for a number of years and regularly publishes new work.

Another careers theory based blog from Tom Staunton, a lecturer in Careers Educaton at ICEGs at the University of Derby.

  1. Hi, I have looked through your document. Have you thought about creating a career audit i.e. careers is not just your sole job, the aim is it should be embedded into the school. The likelihood is careers is happening in some ways in subject departments already, activities you don’t not necessary get involved in. Consider raising achievement, aspirations, expanding the subject further anything which falls into this category – is careers. You then may want to break it down in what you do for each year group combined with the careers audit information and what you coordinate. Sue

    1. Thanks for taking the time to look through our Policy Sue. You’re spot on, we need to spread the responsibility through the subject areas, encourage and assist best practice and then regularly ask staff to audit that provision. Like you say, Careers can be an area in school with which staff can quickly fall into the habitat of signposting queries into a sole member of staff when all could have an input. It’s something we need to evolve into our Policy. Thanks again!
