On Wednesday 27th November Adviza was delighted to welcome DfE Deputy Director Jacquie Spatcher, who visited the charity to learn first hand about current trends and issues in careers services for schools. Her visit took in the Adviza Head Office in Bracknell, where she met Chief Executive Katharine Horler and other members of staff, followed by a visit to Charters School in Ascot.

During her visit she heard about Adviza's successful Careers Advice service for schools and colleges, spoke to one of our Careers Advisers about developments in online guidance, and saw the charity's latest products for schools including a self-assessment health check, careers lesson plans, the online resource eCLIPS and Careers Planet, a game for Key Stages 2-3.

At Charters, Ms Spatcher met representatives from the school and Bucks County Council.  She also had a chance to talk to school students who have benefitted from Adviza’s careers guidance as well as young people participating in Adviza’s Energise project.

Jacquie Spatcher is Head of Participation Division in the DfE’s Education Standards Directorate, with responsibility amongst other things for post-16 participation, NEETs, careers guidance, destination measures and traineeships.
