Notes on the event

Adults in England deserve a high-quality careers guidance system to help them navigate the ever-changing world of work. This session will explore the future for adult guidance drawing from the work of two key studies which are considering how best to support adults.

The session will provide an opportunity to engage with the findings ‘hot off the press’ from these important and large-scale studies and to help the researchers to test the latest thinking in this space. It will be a chance to consider and discuss: What does better adult guidance look like? and What does this mean for me?

 3.30-4.00Small group discussions: suggestions for the future of adult career support

These will provide the opportunity to reflect on the inputs and share our own insights around two key questions:

1: What would you suggest as practical and sustainable directions for improving career support services for adults in the UK?

2: What should we learn from different approaches and practices adopted over time in different parts of the UK and in other countries?

The groups will feedback their suggestions and follow up questions to the speakers.
