Young People and Education

Careers Wales continues to offer wide ranging support to young people, encouraging them to consider all options available in order to achieve their full potential. In 2011/12 more than 102,200 young people in education received careers guidance interviews. Our Careers Advisers conducted more than 26,000 careers related group sessions. Careers Wales also provides a wide range of activities linking employers and further education providers.

Since it was introduced in 2010/11, 92 schools and colleges across Wales have been awarded the Careers Wales Mark. The ‘Mark’ is an award designed by Careers Wales to recognise a commitment to continuous quality improvement within an educational institution to meet with the Welsh Government’s requirements that are set out in Careers and the World of Work: a framework for 11-19 year-olds in Wales.
