HC Deb 12 July 1979 vol 970 c246W
Mr. Cormack

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many schools currently have on their staff a specially appointed careers teacher; and if he will make a statement about careers guidance in secondary schools.

Dr. Boyson

Nearly all secondary schools have one or more designated careers teachers. Many of these will have been appointed for other teaching responsibilities and combine these with careers work; only a minority will have been appointed as careers specialists. Local education authority careers officers work in partnership with the schools to give careers guidance.
