Secondary Careers Advisors - Setting Up a Careers Programme

Description

Penny Turner, an experienced German teacher from Parkwood High School, Sheffield, has recently been delegated responsibility for careers.

With very little knowledge about careers within schools, Penny is looking for guidance on how to assess her school's careers education programme and how it could be developed.

Lynne Coy, an award-winning AST in careers from Yewlands School, also in Sheffield, obliges by meeting with Penny at Yewlands to discuss the benefits of a new careers co-ordinator carrying out an audit on their school's career education programme.

Lynne then delivers a sample careers lesson to Year 8 students, closely watched by Penny. During an evaluation session afterwards, Penny and Lynne discuss the teaching style used during the lesson.

Lynne stresses the importance of having a good working relationship with the school's Connexions personal advisor and the benefits that can be reaped in terms of the overall effectiveness of the school's delivery of careers.
