Making encounters meaningful: support for providers​

This resource is for providers who deliver encounters in schools, special schools and colleges to support students with learning about all pathways.

In the context of the provider access legislation, a provider is an organisation that offers approved technical education qualifications or their representative, for example an FE college or training provider. The purpose of the resource is to enable providers to effectively engage with schools, special schools and colleges to deliver encounters that have an impact on students and are aligned with the institution’s wider careers education programme.​
