The impact of COVID-19 on young people shouldn’t be understated; it will be several years before we fully understand the effects. What we do know is that young people need the help and support of Careers educators now more than ever before. They need us in understanding ever changing job markets and new recruitment practices as well as revisiting the universal skills that are still required to have successful careers. Outstanding leadership remains the constant factor in embedding this provision and delivering impact.
Since we launched just over a month ago, we’ve shared lots ideas covering a range of areas; Careers Ambassadors, potential NEET students and Careers intervention tracking, to name but a few. We know that these are important elements of your provision and we will continue to share what we know to be important. This is a network designed to support your work but we’re calving out space to celebrate your work as well.
