We know it’s a little late but we don’t seen any harm with us reposting our response to the announced changes to the statutory guidance for careers education here. They were released towards the end of the 2020-21 where they may have been missed by some. There isn’t anything major in here and with the changes at the DfE we may see further changes in the future. However, these are the ones we’re working with now, so please find our highlights on this page.
The UCAS 2020 Entry ‘Where next?’ has just been published and it has raised some very interesting recommendations from some very concerning findings. The main evidence for this report has come from a survey of first and second year UK university and college students. More than 27,000 first and second year students, accepted at age 17-19 over the last two cycles, took the time to tell UCAS about their pathway(s) to Higher Education. Below we take a look at those concerning findings and the interesting recommendations.
