Our Chair Mike Britland recently participated in the British Council webinar on Careers Education in a pandemic. The rationale behind the event focused on how the Covid-19 pandemic is reshaping career opportunities for pupils across the world. Mike was joined by educators from India, Bangladesh and a little closer to home in Kent. Each speaker provided some national context regarding careers education as well as offering ways on which we can pivot to maximise opportunities.
We all know that our benchmarks are going to take a hit this year. This is the inevitable outcome of working with young people remotely during a Pandemic. What we need to do now is spend some time examining how we can ensure that student’s individual needs are addressed for the rest of this year and beyond. In the first part of ‘The Link’, we examine how it’s vital to ensure that we are making the most effective use of the information we are gathering in personal guidance sessions.
