In its election manifesto the Conservative Party set out its ambition to make this the most vibrant and dynamic country in the world.2 Delivering on this ambition and sustaining our nation’s economic success depends on the skills, drive and talents of its people. We need to make the most of these and to give everyone the chance to enjoy the satisfaction and rewards that come from a successful working life. That means ensuring young people succeed in making the transition from education into work and work-related training that is right for them as individuals. Careers England (CE) welcomes the Department for Education’s renewed interest in careers and the recently stated commitment to this area by the Secretary of State, Nicky Morgan MP. This was reiterated in a keynote speech in London on 3 December 2015, by the Minister responsible for careers advice, Education and Childcare Minister Sam Gyimah MP.3 This paper is intended as a contribution towards the Department for Education’s forthcoming plan to publish “a comprehensive careers strategy in the coming weeks.”
