DfE clarifies what schools need to publish by September

with No Comments


The Department for Education (DfE) has clarified what schools need to publish as a result of its Careers Guidance.

Its recent amendment to the School Information Regulations tightens up what schools are legally required to communicate publicly by 1 September.

You can read the full amendment and explanatory notes here, but in summary, information should include:

  • the name, email address and telephone number of the school’s Careers Leader (the individual who leads and coordinates the careers programme)
  • a summary of the careers programme, including details as to how pupils, parents, teachers and employers may access this information
  • how the school measures and assesses the impact of the careers programme on pupils
  • the date of the school’s next review of this published information.

The Careers and Enterprise Company (CEC) is collecting good examples of careers programmes and we’ll share them with our schools in Bucks to spread best practice. You can find out more about the role of the Careers Leader in the CEC’s guide here.
