Title:
Effective transitions for Year 8 students
Authors:
Morgan, Sandra; Hutchinson, Jo ( 0000-0001-7206-3164 ) ; Crompton, Nicole
Abstract:
With increased choice and flexibility in the curriculum at Key Stage (KS) 4, Year 9 students will be required to make decisions that could have implications for their future progression and career choices. The provision of good quality information, advice and guidance (IAG) from Year 7 onwards is, therefore, crucial. This project aimed to establish the extent to which current careers education and guidance (CEG) provision in Years 7 and 8 is effectively equipping students with the key skills they need to make realistic choices and successful transitions in Year 9. The research indicated concerns around the decision making skills gaps, variable quality of experiences, the role of mediation of key information, and the potential for personalised support.
