Learners Need Face-to-Face Advice
Sedgmore, Lynne
Adults Learning, v23 n3 p46-47 Spr 2012
In January the 157 Group launched a policy paper making the case for professional careers guidance. With the launch of the National Careers Service in April, information, advice and guidance is a hot topic within the education and skills sector and one that is regularly debated. The combination of policy changes, including the introduction of further education loans in 2013, the changing higher education landscape and rising unemployment, means that now, more than ever, the country needs to ensure that impartial and informed support is available to help young people and adults to fulfil their potential. The 157 Group welcomes moves to develop an all-age guidance service. A split at age 18 does not accord with the reality of many people's lives. Educators are concerned, however, that in the transition from local authorities, valuable expertise will be lost and many young people will lose the option of face-to-face guidance.
