Coronavirus (COVID-19) information: Careers Leader programme members
The latest information on COVID-19 for Careers Leader programme members.
Frequently Asked Questions
- How will the programme respond to the effects of COVID-19?
We recognise COVID-19 has resulted in unprecedented uncertainty for schools. Our programme is designed to support schools to develop a strategy and implementation plan that reflects individual school context which will be even more important in the next academic year.
We’ve also taken a number of steps to respond to COVID-19 in terms of our practical delivery of the programme and reviewing our curriculum.
In terms of curriculum, we updated the programme, revising content on the labour market and the skills needed to reflect changes in the economy. Additionally, you’ll receive more support on virtual solutions and best practice in a world where face-to-face careers activity is likely to be restricted.
We have a network of ambassadors of the Careers Leader programme who can support you with specific areas of your practice, or strategy & implementation plan creation. They operate virtually so this support is available no matter what is happening with COVID-19.
- I am shielding or from an at-risk group for COVID-19, will I be expected to travel?
The health and safety of our programme members is a top priority. We’ll plan all events with strict adherence to government guidelines. In the case where you are uncomfortable attending an in-person event, please get in touch with your assigned Development Lead who'll be able to support you in accessing the content through other means if necessary.
- What happens if my area is in lockdown and I am unable to participate in the programme?
In the event that we return to a local lockdown or tier system, you’ll still be able to access our programme via virtual and online methods. We will provide alternative arrangements for in-person events if required.
All your check-in calls with your Development Lead will still be able to go ahead as they’re run via Zoom.
