Career Guidance for Young People

We argue that the statutory requirement for careers guidance should be extended, and welcome the proposed extension of advice to Year 8 pupils

Science and Society

Our response to the follow-up consultation on "A Vision for Science and Society" by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (now Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy). Our response argues that geography should be recognised more widely as a part-STEM discipline.

Qualifications for 14 to 16 year-olds and Performance Tables

Our response, to proposed changes to qualifications for students from 14-16, agreed that most students should study an "academic core", and that issues of equivalence between academic and vocation qualifications should be addressed.

Strengthening QTS and improving career progression for teachers

We welcome the review and strongly support the proposal for a strengthened early career content framework and CPD. We also advocate for a two-year induction period.
