Aims of the day
Understanding the range of choices that sixth form students face, both within higher education and as alternatives to university, is complex. Government policy has placed more responsibility on schools to provide careers advice and guidance, and Ofsted and ISI have given more prominence to careers support in their inspection frameworks.
This new course from COA has been developed specifically to help and support those heads of sixth form who have responsibility for careers education and guidance for students studying A levels and equivalent qualifications.
The course is applicable to both recently appointed heads of sixth form careers work and those who have been in post for some time and who wish to refresh their programmes.
The course will cover:
- an overview of careers education and guidance principles, policy and practice, with specific reference to 16-19 year-old students following A level and equivalent courses
- an examination of the full range of options available at 18+
- careers education: recommended frameworks; published teaching resources; curriculum models
- careers guidance: identifying and meeting students’ needs; managing the links with tutoring and mentoring; effective use of Centigrade
- work experience and work shadowing in the sixth form.
