London Ambitions Careers Curriculum 2016

  • By London Councils

This Careers Curriculum framework is aimed at middle managers, teachers, careers and enterprise  specialists, businesses, local authorities and other relevant government agencies working with young Londoners in various education and community settings. It is designed to act as stimuli material for collective action in schools and colleges across London.

London Ambitions calls for:

Young People

  • Access to impartial, independent  and personalised careers education, information, advice and guidance
  • At least 100 hours of experiences  of the world of work for all young Londoners and a digital portfolio

Leadership and accountability

  • An explicit publicised careers policy and careers curriculum  in every secondary school and college
  • A governor  with responsibility for ensuring the institution  supports all students to relate their learning to careers and the world of work from an early age

Support for a high quality careers work

  • Up-to-date, user-friendly  labour market intelligence/information (LMI)
  • Formation and development  of ‘careers clusters’ to improve awareness of London’s labour market and supporting  school and college leaders in a whole-school approach to plan and deliver careers provision. In 2016, twelve new Careers Clusters were established, supported  by  European Social Funding (ESF).
  • A London Ambitions Portal – linking education to business and the careers community. This is now a live resource for London schools, colleges and employers. Visit: www.london.gov.uk/ambitions
