The Children's Plan sets out our vision for a professional, graduate-led children's work force. This includes looking at ways to professionalise the careers work force in schools, enhancing the range of qualifications, and quality and accessibility of continuing professional development opportunities in careers education. We are building on current support, by developing a range of resources to support the careers work force in schools, including curriculum guidance on careers education and work-related learning; and high-quality classroom materials for teachers.
