Careers service


The Institute of Career Guidance has published Uncertain futures, which is a survey of its members. The findings, based on around 340 responses, show that cuts to the careers service in England are putting the futures of young people at risk.

  • Nearly one in six respondents said that the entire careers service in their area was due to close or had already closed.
  • Half said their employer had already made redundancies or issued “at risk” notices.
  • One in six reported that their employer has already planned for an online service to replace face-to-face guidance.

The survey found that no respondents were confident that their local authority would be able to offer a fully comprehensive careers information advice and guidance (IAG) service to all young people aged 14-19.
