Presented by Rhys Davies

This presentation explores the provision of careers guidance among 2 cohorts of Key Stage 4 children in Wales and its impact on the transitions subsequently made by Year 11 pupils into Post-Compulsory Education and Training (PCET). Analysis reveals that having a one-to-one careers guidance session in Year 10 or 11 is association with a reduction in the proportion of pupils who do not proceed to PCET.  This finding is strongest among those with the lowest levels of educational attainment and those who are eligible for Free School Meals.  The results highlight the importance of prioritising support among those who are most at risk of becoming disengaged and falling outside the education, training or employment system.
