Careers guidance: advice for schools

Guidance to help schools understand their duties in relation to the careers advice they give to students.



This is for:

  • school leaders
  • school staff
  • governing bodies
  • local authorities

It applies to:

  • local-authority-maintained schools
  • academies and free schools
  • pupil referral units

It contains good practice information and links to resources to help schools and colleges meet their duty to secure independent careers guidance for young people.

It should be read alongside the statutory guidance on ‘Careers guidance provision for young people in schools’.
