New Careers Statutory Guidance
The DfE released a new statutory guidance document in January 2018, including a number of new requirements for school careers programmes, most of which are to be met by the end of 2020. Many of the requirements are already met at King Edward VI Handsworth School for Girls, but we will be working towards those that are not.
The most immediate requirement is for all schools to have a policy for ‘Provider Access’ so that everyone is clear on how and when outside organisations will be allowed access to King Edward VI Handsworth School for Girls to promote other educational routes and training opportunities. We have always been very open to this and work with a range of organisations already, but we are now reviewing our school careers policy so that it will include a section on provider access, and will publish our updated policy here as soon as possible.
Our current careers policy can be found on Moodle.
