The Scottish Government established a short-life working group to develop a framework for qualifications and Continuous Professional Development (CPD) for the career development workforce in Scotland. In this report, we - the Working Group - provide such a framework and make recommendations on future action.
Interspersed throughout are case studies reflecting current qualifications.
The long-term outcome we envisage is quality, relevant and meaningful qualifications and professional development opportunities that meet the needs of all of the career development workforce and which are utilised to best effect.
This will support the effective and efficient delivery of careers services that enable people to
make informed learning, job and career choices throughout their lives to maximise their opportunities to get, stay, flourish and progress in work.
