In October 2021, the Manor Group commissioned dmh associates to undertake an evidence-based literature review building upon an earlier Akrill Review Vol. I (2015-2019), which set out a detailed overview of the careers landscape in England, including the DfE Careers Strategy (2017 -2020).
Jan Ellis, the CEO of Qdos Education, will be presenting the latest UK findings at our forthcoming International Conference on 7th July 2022. Click on the link to register for the conference – https://dmhassociates.org/conference
The Akrill Review – Vol. II review further expands the evidence base, drawing upon UK, European and International findings. The importance of local places and online spaces for careers support is informing the Manor Property Group (Qdos Education), policymakers and other key stakeholders who have a particular interest in the design of innovative all-age careers support embedded deep in local communities
A rigorous literature review of relevant studies from across the globe was carried out, analysing 115 reports in total and an additional 14 key case studies. The content provides rich information of comparable approaches to the unique Qdos Career Hub initiative in England, with its own unique and distinctive characteristics.
The aim of the research was to highlight examples of best practice from all over the world to identify ‘what works’ well in other countries and how aspects of these methods might be transferrable to an English context.
The evidence summarised in the main report suggests that the Qdos Career Hubs are being set up thoughtfully and are on track to have an impact on people of all-ages. More details on the key findings can be found in the full report.
