DESC Careers Information, Advice and Guidance Service

The Department of Education, Sport and Culture has released an updated careers education framework (2017) which relates to the Gatsby benchmarks of best practice. The 2017 Careers Framework is a guidance document that will help schools to continue to plan, deliver and review careers programmes that meet the range of needs of learners at different ages and stages of development.


It is a document for employers and others working with children and young people as it helps support wider understanding of how their contributions can complement school careers, employability and enterprise education programmes.
