I’m pleased to announce that Education Business Ltd has gained the national Matrix Quality Award for providing Information, Advice and Guidance to young people in schools. We passed the rigorous assessment process and look forward to continuing our work in local schools
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.

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.
