Working With Young People

We work with a network of experienced career development experts to deliver tailored career guidance and planning support to young people aged 12-18. Careers education allows young people to make informed decisions about what career options are available to them.

Higher education institutions, school leaders, and education departments, increasingly recognise that in order for young people to maximise their potential, in a complex and constantly changing world, we need to take the necessary steps to change the way careers education is delivered.

Through our expertise and extensive research, we have established that career education must be introduced in the form of career guidance from age 12 or year 7/8. As educators, we have a responsibility to ensure young people have easy access to quality and tailored careers education.

The Gatsby Benchmarks highlighted key issues within careers guidance in schools, many schools across the UK are implementing changes and improvements by the end of 2020.

We are here to support schools and youth organisations to meet their career education obligations through our CAREERPLAN programme. Future Careers has also made it possible for parents/guardians to invest directly in tailored careers education for their teenagers.
