My Rt hon. Friend, the Secretary of State for Education, has confirmed that she wants to see improvements to the quality of careers advice and guidance available to young people. Ensuring that many more schools and employers work together to provide excellent support is central to this. The Department for Education is consulting to examine what further steps it can take to improve provision. A number of employers and education sector representatives, including the CBI, participated in a roundtable discussion on 28 October 2014 to discuss how we can prepare young people for the world of work more effectively.
