2.2 What CEG can deliver for schools
In the Ofsted inspection framework for English schools, based on the five themes from Every Child Matters, CEG is part of the school's self-evaluation of how it helps young people ‘achieve economic well-being’. Some of the evidence for achieving that outcome is how well young people are ‘prepared for working life’. CEG also helps achieve the outcome of ‘making a positive contribution where… young people are helped to manage changes and respond to challenges in their lives; and… young people are supported at key transition points in their lives’.
