The Education, Skills and the Economy Sub-Committee has launched an inquiry looking at careers advice, information and guidance. This inquiry is set to look at issues such as the quality of current careers advice, the effectiveness of careers advice in supporting people into apprenticeships, and how careers advice in schools and college can help match skills with the needs of the jobs market. The Committee would like to hear your thoughts and experiences to help inform the work of Parliament and scrutinise the work of the Government. Key Questions How good do you think careers advice, information and guidance services are? How impartial is the careers advice, information and guidance provided by schools and colleges? Does it do enough to make young people aware of all the options available to them (e.g. options to go on to university, into apprenticeships, into vocational training etc)? Is there enough information and guidance available about apprenticeships – what they involve and how to become an apprentice? Would you like to see employers play a bigger role in providing careers advice, information and guidance to young people? Is there enough interaction between employers and schools? Submit your comments You can share your comments in this thread which will be provided to the Committee. You can also send in a formal submission through the Committee's evidence portal.
