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.
