Examining research into the impact of careers education on improving young people’s outcomes, this literature review provides a summary of the most recent studies and evidence into careers education.
Drawing on longitudinal studies, the authors address ways in which teenagers think about their futures in education and employment, and how this has a significant impact on what becomes of them as working adults. The literature they look at suggests that careers education is best utilised when interventions are personalised and targeted to individuals’ needs from an early age.
They suggest there is compelling evidence that career learning should begin in primary school and continue through adulthood, with the majority of studies providing evidence of improvements to academic achievement under such a system.
In listing research, EdCentral makes no judgment or recommendation as to its quality, validity or methodology and none should be inferred. Through peer ratings left by education practitioners, EdCentral’s aim is to support the development of a repository of shared knowledge and experience.
