NICEC is a network of Fellows, in the UK and abroad, who are career education and counselling researchers and practitioners drawn from a wide range of settings. Fellows believe passionately in improving policy and practice through discovering and sharing evidence and developing career education and counselling theory.

We share our knowledge and learn from others through our Seminar series, the NICEC Journal and our publications. NICEC Members receive the Journal and attend Seminars at discounted rates. Why not join us and contribute to developing career guidance practice, theory and policy.
