Cornwall Careers Offer 2016 - 2020

Careers Education Information Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) is recognised within Cornwall’s Education Strategy and by the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly (CIoS) Employment and Skills Board as a strategic priority. It forms a key feature of the Employment and Skills strand of Cornwall’s Devolution Deal with Government.

It is well documented nationally and locally that CEIAG for young people 11 - 25 needs improving. The 2015 Confederation of British Industry's (CBI) / Pearson’s Education and Skills Survey 2015 shows that more than three quarters of businesses across the UK feel the quality of careers advice needs improving to help young people make informed decisions about future career options.

There is much excellent practice but the CEIAG landscape is congested and confusing and we lack a consistent offer for all young people in Cornwall. We also lack a strategy for coordinating existing and future investment into activity.

This document identified within the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Employment and Skills Strategy 2016-30 sets out the rationale for the 10 key strands that make up a Careers Offer for Cornwall’s young people and which together would transform the landscape of CEAIG activity across the county. This Careers Offer has drawn on a range of research (both national and local) and models from elsewhere in the country and county.
