What does the Education Act 2011 say schools need to do?
Section 29 of the Education Act 2011 places schools under a duty to secure access to independent careers guidance for their pupils in school years 8-13 . Head Teachers, school staff and governing bodies must have regard to this statutory guidance issued by the Secretary of State in exercising their functions under this section.The act says that careers guidance secured under the new duty must:
- be presented in an impartial manner (described as being provided by a qualified Guidance Practitioner not employed by the education institution)
- include information on the full range of post-16 education or training options, including Apprenticeships; and
- promote the best interests of the pupils to whom it is given.
Careers Education Information Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) AUDIT SERVICE
An audit of your provision against Ofsted requirements, the Statutory Duty and the ACEG (Association of Careers Education and Guidance) Framework. Resulting in a Report and Development Plan, this can assist you in reviewing, developing and enhancing your CEIAG programme in school or college. Ofsted look at "how well leaders and managers ensure that the curriculum...provides timely independent information, advice and guidance to assist pupils on their next steps to training, education or employment".

What is Raising the Participation Age (RPA)?
RPA has been introduced which requires all young people to continue in "learning" until the age of 17 from summer 2014, and up to age 18 from summer 2015. As part of RPA, the duty on schools to ensure independent careers advice is provided has been extended to include Year 8 and post 16 from September 2013.
