Careers Guidance

Careers Guidance
Schools should help every pupil develop high aspirations and consider a broad and ambitious range of careers. Inspiring every pupil through more real-life contacts with the world of work can help them understand where different choices can take them in the future. (Careers guidance and inspiration in schools, DfE April 2014)

Personal, social, health and economic (PSHE)

Helping to ‘prepare pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life’. (National Curriculum England, Dec 2014). The 2013 Ofsted PSHE report highlights the relationship between a school’s PSHE provision and overall effectiveness, noting:

"a close correlation between the grades that the schools in the survey were awarded for overall effectiveness in their last section 5 inspection, and their grade for PSHE education…"

If PSHE lessons are observed as part of a Section 5 inspection, Ofsted will expect the same standards of teaching and learning as they would in other subjects.

Here are examples of how business leaders can demonstrate the use of subjects in their companies and how learning certain skills have helped them throughout their careers.
