Delivering Careers By Design

The Career Review has outlined an ambitious redesign of the career system in Scotland, with ten recommendations designed to ensure career services equip people with the skills to thrive in a rapidly changing world of work. 

The report, subsequently approved by Scottish Government Ministers, outlined a series of ‘next steps’ in order to implement change. 

These included: 

  • co-designing an overarching Target Operating Model, setting out a refreshed vision, operating principles and expected user outcomes for career services. 
  • recommending the remit, functions and composition of a Career Services Coalition, which ensures implementation of the review recommendations and the coherence of career services across Scotland
