NICEC is committed to serious thinking and innovation in career development work. Membership is open to all. 

Founded in 1975, NICEC is a learned society for reflective practitioners in career education, career guidance/counselling, and career development. This includes those working in research, policy, consultancy, scholarship, service delivery and management, within education, the workplace, or the wider community. We foster dialogue and innovation between these areas through events, networking, publications and projects.

NICEC is not a professional association or commercial research institute, nor is it organisationally aligned with any specific institution. Although based in the UK, there is a strong international dimension.

NICEC is managed by its Fellows who maintain it as a company and provide the programme of events and publications.


NICEC is managed by 34 Fellows active in scholarship, innovative practice, national policy development, and the education of career professionals.
