What to expect from a Career Guidance Meeting:
- A career guidance meeting offers Information, Advice and Guidance, is private, and can be used to discuss post-16 plans and education.
- Common subjects in guidance meetings are. ‘How can I start to make some plans?’ 'I’m not sure what jobs I’d be good at', 'Should I look at A Levels or BTECS?'.
- A guidance meeting will give ‘time out’ to explore options, look at things objectively and think about the implications of any decision.
- Students are requested to come along with any questions and to talk about the things that may be concerning them.
- The aim is to make the picture clearer and to enable planning for the next steps.
The Government has raised the participation age (RPA) so that all young people in England are now required to continue in education or training until at least their 18th birthday.
