Rationalising "for" and "against" a Policy of School-Led Careers Guidance in STEM in the U.K.: A Teacher Perspective
Watermeyer, Richard; Morton, Pat; Collins, Jill
International Journal of Science Education, v38 n9 p1441-1458 2016
This paper reports on teacher attitudes to changes in the provision of careers guidance in the U.K., particularly as it relates to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). It draws on survey data of n = 94 secondary-school teachers operating in STEM domains and their attitudes towards a U.K. and devolved policy of internalising careers guidance within schools. The survey presents a mixed message of teachers recognising the significance of their unique position in providing learners with careers guidance yet concern that their "relational proximity" to students and "informational distance" from higher education and STEM industry may produce bias and misinformation that is harmful to their educational and occupational futures.
