This document is a summary of the main points discussed during the career and informed choice forum at the Westminster Conference Centre on Friday, 28 November 2014, which the Skills Funding Agency organised with assistance from techUK.

It would be of interest to area-based careers advisers, local authority partners, Local Enterprise Partnerships, colleges and training organisations, digital and data professionals.

The event explored the role of data as an enabler for better career advice services and for more empowered and informed citizens. Its objective was to discuss and gain feedback from a wide array of stakeholders interested in skills and career choices. In particular, the forum focused on how to maximise the reuse of data across the whole skills sector and ensure that services correctly address the needs of users.
