Survey Results

We surveyed Students, teachers, head teachers, parents and employers to find out their views on current careers guidance:

At the end of the project we repeated the survey to see if the lesson plans had an impact on students and teachers.

Overall with the students and staff that had taken part in the project there was a positive increase of knowledge and skills around choosing the right career path, however it was clear that for those schools that did not embrace the lesson plans there was no change in the views of their students, staff or parents.

Sharing best practice: careers in PSHE

(Gatsby 4 and 5)
St Michael’s Catholic School in High Wycombe shared some very simple, but effective best practice after the ‘Careers in PSHE’ workshop in February sponsored by Erasmus+.
Careers Coordinator Monika Grosch explains: “I agree the dates with our PHSE Coordinator so that the activities are timely (in particular for year 11 to prepare them for post-16 options) and planning and preparation can start early. We usually have a preparation session first, followed by an employer encounter and then a reflection activity.  This then gives our Enterprise Adviser plenty of time to help us plan events and invite employers.
“For example, this year for Year 7 we had an introductory Careers Question Time, in Year 8 we focused on a particular industry sector and in Year 9 we had our First Steps careers talks linked to choosing GCSE options. Sometimes for the preparation we use the free online careers platform Start to get students thinking about ideas. However you organise it, the key is to simply secure the dates early on – and start planning!”
