Labour promise individual careers advice for every secondary school pupil

The Labour Party have promised that, should they form the next British government, they will guarantee that all secondary school pupils will receive face-to-face, individual careers advice and guidance.  They claim that current careers advice in schools is all too often simply directing pupils to online resources and that face-to-face meetings with careers advisors are essential for supporting young people into a career.

The Labour Party’s education manifesto also includes plans to reverse the Coalition’s decision to scrap compulsory work experience for pupils aged 14 – 16 as well as a promise to focus on both vocational and academic routes into careers.
