Taking action: achieving a culture change in careers provision

The National Careers Council (NCC) provided advice to the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills on a strategic vision for the National Careers Service (NCS) in England. In its first report, An Aspirational Nation: Creating a culture change in careers provision (June 2013), the NCC highlighted the need for a culture change to address the mismatch between high unemployment and employers who are struggling to recruit.

In this report from 2014, the NCC concentrates on the important role that the NCS has to play in supporting young peoples’ access to quality-assured careers products and services as well as adults.
