Careers Advice in Schools

A great article today on the BBC News Website about Careers in Schools. Check it out here.

I run a careers Advice programme at Aldridge School in Walsall. My way is to bring in a range of Industry specialists to talk to targeted groups of pupils.

It works very well and I’ve had some great feedback from an independent audit, which gauged young people’s responses and remarks.

Anyone delivering careers without involving the local business community should not be doing the job.

School Curriculum -Stop Meddling Politicians

Frame_Pub_Quiz(1)

his BBC News article about the ‘Pub Quiz’ school curriculum is spot on. Pumping useless facts into kids is not the way to go. Showing them potential careers and jobs will inspire them to achieve at school, not actively making lessons more boring.

I don’t want this blog to turn into constant Michael Gove bashing, but we can’t let him continue on a path of making school irrelevant and tedious (for kids and teachers!).

The curriculum needs to be brought to life by bringing employers and specialists into schools not by introducing yet another raft of pointless targets and inspections. Enough already.
