Counselling, careers education and pastoral care: beyond the National Curriculum
The National Curriculum and other recent educational reforms in the UK have had the effect of compartmentalising children's education into the measurableâ–”usually the academicâ–”and of undervaluing its socio-emotional aspects. A symposium presenting different views of the implications of these reforms is introduced. A plea is made for all professionals involved in education to move from a reductionist view to one which truly enhances the whole child.
