Careers education and guidance is an essential part of every student's curriculum. It prepares and motivates pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life
Our aim is to reduce the number of young people aged 16-19 who are not in education, employment or training.
We prepare students for the choices, changes and transitions that will affect their future education, training, career and life as an adult member of society. We do this by providing:
• High quality, impartial information, support, advice and guidance for young people aged 13 to 19 within learning institutions – up to 25 years old for students with additional needs – in ways that meet their individual requirements;
• Information, advice and guidance to front-line deliverers of careers education;
• Accurate, up-to-date, objective information on opportunities, progression routes, and choices on where to find help and how to access it;
• Activities that help young people gather, understand and interpret information, and apply it to their own situation;
• Impartial guidance and specialist support to help young people understand themselves and their needs, confront barriers, resolve conflicts, develop new perspectives and progress;
• Support for curriculum development.
