Schools Council Careers Education and Guidance Project, Cambridge (England).
Sponsored by the Schools Council (an independent national body responsible for curriculum and examinations), the project has been concerned with devising new materials in career education for pupils and teachers. The basic philosophy of careers education is a continuous process that actively involves students in discovering individual potentialities as well as the real world of work. It includes knowledge of basic employment facts, decision making skills, and the development of sufficient social competence. The materials will consist of: a foundation course for third year secondary education pupils, a continuation course for fourth and fifth year pupils, and a concluding course for sixth form pupils and students in further education. The foundation course has been divided into eight sections that correspond to issues of a newspaper which are used as starting points for lessons. Of the 180 schools in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland that are helping in the project, 30 schools are designated as pilot schools to be monitored by regular visits. The schedule for trial of continuation course materials is September 1973. The project encourages local units, involvement of teachers, and advisement from a consultative committee and advisory panel. (EA)
