Careers 2020 aims to scope out how young people can best be supported to plan for, and progress into, their futures.

The First Phase of the project, conducted with iCeGs, features an evidence-based review of careers work covering recent history, the current situation, a menu of possible options for schools, and recommendations for how careers work can be strategically integrated across everything schools do, including the curriculum.

The Second Phase surveyed a nationally representative sample of people involved in school-based careers work to explore which careers activities recently took place in schools and which they are planning to deliver in the future.

Please use the #Careers2020 hashtag on Twitter to follow the project.
