On 30th June Careers England released a Position Paper calling for an urgent stakeholder debate on the future of Careers Education and Guidance in England.

The Paper, ‘The Future of Careers Guidance’, says there must be an all age entitlement to professional, independent, careers education and guidance and that this should be appropriately resourced, supported by a national strategy and delivered locally.

Careers England believes that it is time for a radical rethink about how we can better deliver accessible, high quality career education and guidance, to all ages. Current provision, particularly for young people, is patchy and fragmented. Evidence indicates that access to good lifelong guidance would support the government in the delivery of its educational, social, welfare and economic objectives. But to achieve this there needs to be a comprehensive review of the resources that are currently available in the system and for these resources to be more strategically managed and targeted.

The Paper strongly recommends that career education and guidance is provided through a local delivery model, co-ordinated by a national strategy and overseen by an independent stakeholder body.
