2021 Trends in Careers Education: a reflection

n Wednesday we got an early Christmas gift from the good people over at The Careers and Enterprise Company, the 2021 Trends in Careers Education. What a lovely gift it was to receive so much positive news to digest at a time where, lets face it, we’re all crawling to the finish line of a long hard Autumn term. The report itself is based on data reported from 3893 schools and colleges (about 78%) and also wider published research. We tweeted our initial and brief thoughts Thursday morning, which you can also read in this piece. Click through to read how we expand our thinking in more detail, but we’re really keen to hear what you think of the report. Please do leave a comment at the end of the article letting us know your thoughts.
