“Going in the right direction?” Ofsted Careers survey & Bis response documents

Thanks to Russel of the Secondary CEIAG blog for summarising all of the critical careers policy documents released today (Ofsted and the Goverment response). I’ll hopefully get time to read these and write something meaningful about them sometime over the next couple of days.

But, in the meantime, Russel is keeping track of everything that is being put out in response to this.

Statement from the Norovian Government

We are all citizens of the Norovian Republic, a forward-thinking European country with ambitious university research departments which are interested in leading European research. At the same time, we respect traditional family values, religious beliefs and our culture. Norovia is a stable, parliamentary democracy, a member of the UN and the Council of Europe, and a new member of the European Union.In this changing climate, we need to look at the controversial issue of stem cell research. We currently have no legislation pertaining to this issue and therefore wish to clarify what the legal situation in respect of stem cell research in our country should be.

In order to gain a clearer understanding of public opinion in Norovia, we intend to hold a Citizens’ Jury to examine this issue.

On the one hand, we appreciate the UK’s position, where research is regulated and creation of human embryos for research purposes is allowed by law, which is said by many to be the way forward for the eradication of genetic diseases.

At the same time, we appreciate the Irish position, whereby the state acknowledges the right to life of the unborn from the moment of conception.

We also understand fully the German position, which takes a more neutral stance on the issue, but we question whether this would provide a suitable solution for our scientists and biotech industry.

It will be the role of the Citizens’ Jury to examine this issue fully, hear evidence from a wide variety of points of view, and make recommendations for the basis of future legislation in Norovia.

This is a unique opportunity to shape a key policy area that has the potential to have a significant impact on the lives of many of our citizens. As both a citizen and a representative of your group’s views, you have a real societal duty to participate fully and try to make sure that your views are represented.
