The Government’s Minister for Skills has praised the efforts of schools and colleges to strengthen careers and links with employers in the Times Educational Supplement.

Sixteen months on from the publication of the Careers Strategy, Ann Milton writes:

“By expanding the remit of the Careers & Enterprise Company, we are helping schools and colleges to deliver on all of the Gatsby Benchmarks. The good news is that things are already changing for the better… now, when I visit schools and colleges, there is a real buzz of excitement about careers.

“Schools and colleges are reporting improvements on all dimensions of careers education. Ofsted has also said it is seeing improvement… The real breakthrough is the faster progress in schools and colleges serving disadvantaged communities.”
