PCDL: information for careers advice professionals
Diagram about about professional career development loans to help provide impartial information, advice and guidance.
The big picture is a desk aid for information, advice and guidance professionals such as university or college careers advisors, Jobcentre Plus advisors, National Careers Service advisors and union learning representatives about PCDL. They can use it to provide impartial information, advice and guidance to people considering taking part in learning or training.
However, PCDLs should not be used by colleges and training organisations to encourage learners to enrol on their courses. Colleges and training organisations must act responsibly in helping individuals choose learning and support which is relevant to their needs and abilities.
