Education Forum June 2022
Careers by design: Ensuring the needs of care experienced learners are at the heart of Scotland's career services
For this CELCIS Education Forum, we were delighted to welcome Pauline Stratford from Skills Development Scotland (SDS), to speak about its recent Career Review, which aims to ensure that career services in Scotland are fit for purpose and future proofed to meet the demands of a changing world of work.
On behalf of the Scottish Government SDS have recently worked with partners across Scotland on the most comprehensive review of Scotland's career services in a generation. Careers services in Scotland are provided by a wide range of organisations and institutions, and the following were in scope for the review:
- Skills Development Scotland
- Developing the Young Workforce
As the next phase begins, focused on implementation, the Forum meeting provided an opportunity for attendees to be part of the conversation and ensure the needs of our care experienced community are reflected in the detailed service design stage.
