Background


From September 2012, schools & colleges have been asked to secure access to independent, impartial careers advice & guidance for year 8-13 students. Beacon East can provide support to ensure that the provision institutions commission will meet these statutory requirements and most importantly guide students correctly to the next stage in their life path.

‘The Education Act 2011 inserted a new duty, section 42A, into Part VII of the Education Act 1997, requiring schools to secure access to independent careers guidance for pupils in years 9-11. Careers guidance must be presented in an impartial manner and promote the best interests of the pupils to whom it is given. Careers guidance must also include information on all options available in respect of 16-18 education or training, including apprenticeships and other work-based education and training options’. Education Act 2011
