Better Practice: Practical Strategies for Developing Excellence in Careers Education.
Reece, Liz, Ed.
With new demands and expectations being placed on careers work, the role of careers service is changing to focus on those most at risk of dropping out of education. Recent research has been used to show how careers education has improved since the mid-1980s, but there is still much work to be done. New challenges must be met by those responsible for planning and delivering careers education if students are to be well prepared for making informed and realistic career decisions. These materials are intended to support staff with these responsibilities. Model schemes of work, assessments of learning, teaching and learning styles, and evaluation have rarely been considered in specific careers education and guidance context. The purpose of this information packet is to examine in depth those areas of careers curriculum planning that have had little previous attention. The packet is divided into seven sections focusing on: introduction, background and purpose of the packet; the national framework for careers education; curriculum models and the delivery of careers education; teaching and learning strategies; schemes of work and lesson plans; assessing students career learning; and evaluating the effectiveness of careers programs.
