Leeds City Region, under the guidance of the Information, Advice and Guidance Task Group, has launched a suite of resources to support teachers and careers guidance professionals when working with their learners. Click on the screen shot to the left to access the website.
In this period of adjustment in guidance provision the resources are intended to allow all young people to have access to meaningful and informative career advice materials.
A number of videos have been produced, introducing businesses from key sectors in the Leeds City Region economy and interviewing employees on how they obtained their positions, what qualifications, skills and attributes they required and how ongoing development is required. Interviews with managers responsible for recruiting provide an insight on what they look for in the talent they recruit.
The videos are accompanied by a set of sector fact sheets offering key information on the types of business in each sector, typical job roles and salaries.
There are even lesson plans and tutorial guidance notes for use by teachers and guidance officers for key stages 3, 4 and 5.
