The overall purpose of this Consultation Paper is to make policy proposals for the future development of Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) and to set out a strategy that will address the CEIAG needs of individuals of all ages.
CEIAG is an integral part of the Department of Education’s Entitled 2 Succeed Programme and the Department of Employment and Learning’s Success Through Skills Strategy which highlight the need for an independent all-age strategy for CEIAG. The proposed strategy aims to support young people and adults in better-informed decision
making, leading to more effective career planning and increased participation in education, training and employment. Stakeholder perspectives for this strategy were gathered through use of the Futuresearch methodology.
This strategy paper proposes a VISION for the future of careers services for the citizens of Northern Ireland and makes KEY RECOMMENDATIONS on how such a vision can be implemented.
