Clements, Margaret; Luke, Stephanie; Yates, David; Watts, Tony
The Personal Learning Planning (PLP) model focuses on the needs and ongoing development of the individual, links career guidance to the learning process, and links learning to work. It identifies ways in which the Careers Service (CS) in Britain can work in partnership with other professionals and provides consistent and continuing support for the individual's career development on a lifelong basis. Individuals need to be encouraged to engage in a regular process of reviewing, recording, and planning in relation to their learning and work throughout their lives with the progress file as the reference point. Foundations for the process should be laid in schools and individuals encouraged to manage the process themselves with access to ongoing support. A key worker should be responsible to provide support, including access to specialist guidance for those who need it. Guidance provision should be available at three levels: core service for all; filtered service for those who need specialist help; and intensive service for those in particular need of ongoing specialist help. CS's role is to secure the agreement of the partner organization/professionals to support the model; offer key worker training and support; and provide core, filtered, and intensive services. (Examples of the model are attached for six target groups within CS's statutory client group: year 9 pupils; key stage 4 pupils; full-time post-16 students; work-based trainees; unemployed young people; and employed young people. A transparency master of the PLP process is provided.) (YLB)
