What is the Baker Clause?

The Baker Clause was introduced within the Technical and Further Education Act 2017, which states that schools must allow colleges and training providers access to every student in years 8 - 13 to discuss non-academic routes that are available to them. It is expected that by doing so this will help address the UK's productivity challenges and address skills shortages across sectors of the economy. The Baker Clause came into force in January 2018.
What does Ofsted say?
Ofsted has updated how it will report on careers guidance. All secondary schools are expected to provide effective careers information, education, advice and guidance (CIEAG), in line with the statutory 'Careers guidance and access for education and training providers gov.uk'. When inspected by Ofsted, inspectors will consider what impact current offerings has on the quality of CIEAG as part of learner personal development which will be recorded within the school's Ofsted report.
