About this seminar
Consultation on the Government's Industrial Strategy Green Paper closes on 17th April. The skills 'pillar' of its proposals includes a commitment to 'do more to empower students, parents and employers to make confident and informed choices about their education and careers options, whether they are in schools, technical education or higher education', as well as to promote lifelong learning.
In a recent speech Skills Minister Robert Halfon commented: "I strongly believe that the conditions are right to...transform the nature of careers guidance... (L) ocating in one department responsibility for both young people and adults is an exciting opportunity that can bring about a coherent approach to lifelong careers... – from primary schools right through to retirement. I also want to root our approach to careers provision firmly at the heart of the government’s focus on social justice, and our desire to make sure that everyone, regardless of their background, has the opportunity to progress in life."
We are delighted that Louise Proctor, Head of the National Careers Service, will be joining us on 23rd March to consider the proposed developments for careers advice and their potential impact.
The session will be chaired by Tricia Hartley. As with all sessions, there will be plenty of time for questions and discussion and the seminar will be held under the Chatham House Rule to facilitate open discussion and debate.
