With the publication of the government’s Careers Strategy back in December and the release of further guidance, aimed at sixth form and further education colleges, in Spring, careers information, advice and guidance (CIAG) is firmly in the spotlight.

This interactive forum will provide an opportunity for staff involved in designing and delivering a college CIAG offer to explore how they can meet the requirements of the Careers Strategy, including the eight Gatsby benchmarks. The forum will provide opportunities to share issues and concerns and explore how these can be addressed, as well as highlighting existing good practice in the network.

Attendees will have an opportunity to hear how Linking London can support colleges with meeting these requirements and identify what else we can do collaboratively going forward. We will also be exploring how our university partners can support this work and by way of example, the University of Greenwich will be discussing how their activities, events and resources can help colleges to meet a number of the Gatsby benchmarks.

This forum is aimed at college staff involved in the design and/or delivery of a careers offer and university staff interested in how we can support colleges to meet the government’s requirements, but anyone with an interest in finding out more about this work is welcome to attend.
