UCL Institute of Education and Education and Employers: Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) Seminar Series


Tuesday 3 October 2017

12.00 to 14.00

Amazon Room

Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management

106-109 Saffron Hill, Farringdon, London EC1 8QS

Please save the date for a new free seminar organised by Education and Employers in conjunction with The UCL Institute of Education’s Centre for Post-14 Education and Work exploring the nature of 14-19 education in England and the ways in which schools can better prepare young people for employment. The seminar will be of interest to teachers, researchers, careers practitioners and policy makers who are interested in recent research into policy and practice.

Hosted at CIWEM in Farringdon, Central London, the seminar takes place on the 3rd October 2017 between 12:00 – 14:00. Light lunch will be provided.

In our first joint seminar we presented about the relationship between CEIAG and employment outcomes in two recently published studies by UCL Institute of Education and Education and Employers. You can find the presentations here.

In light of the complicated nature of the secondary phase of education and with schools struggling to respond to the budget cuts and provide young people with adequate CEIAG, we decided to organize this seminar to pay closer attention to the topic of policy and practice in order to uncover some fundamental issues and complement it by some research for practice.

This two-hour seminar presents and discusses two recent research papers that provide insights into careers education policy and practice. These will be followed by a discussion about the findings of the research where the audience can share their views.

Spaces at the seminar are limited.  To reserve a place, please use this link.

For further enquiries please email: Jordan.Rehill@educationandemployers.org.

The seminar is free to attend.
