We’re working with partners on a collaborative, evidence-based review of all careers services in Scotland.

The review will capture and respond to the views, needs and experiences of young people, parents, employers, teachers as well as experts in further and higher education.

It aims to ensure careers services are fit for purpose and future proofed and to provide recommendations for the implementation of all age career services across Scotland in line with Scotland's Careers Strategy - Moving Forward report.

The review will also look at best practice and innovation from across the world with the aim of presenting final recommendations to Ministers this December. 

Scotland’s Career Strategy: Vision 

  • For a world class, professionally led, aligned and flexible system of career information, advice and guidance (CIAG) services which delivers for everyone
  • A system where people can expect a high standard of support that meets their needs when they need it most
  • A system that is fully interconnected to ensure citizens access the right people and services, including employability and skills support.
