The Effectiveness of Careers Services: the Scottish Executive Enterprise and Lifelong Learning Department

Sheila Semple, Cathy Howieson

    Research output: Book/ReportOther report

    Abstract

    The research was commissioned by the Scottish Office in 1997 to map Careers Service (CS) provision across Scotland and consider its effectiveness after a period of major change to its organisation and management. The research defined effectiveness in terms of the extent to which provision met clients' needs rather than whether Careers Service Companies (CSCs) were operating effectively within their existing resources. The research was focused on the core work of the Careers Service and aimed to consider how well provision met the needs of young people, employers and Training Organisations.
