What we do
Our professionally qualified careers advisers help individuals to become more effective at successfully managing and planning their career development. Career management isn’t about a one-off occupational choice, but rather a series of lifelong career transitions. Improving the career management skills of individuals enables them to make transitions more smoothly, enjoy a higher level of career satisfaction and play a more active part in the economy and in their communities.
Our bilingual services are focussed on those in greatest need of support with their career planning.
We deliver independent and impartial careers information, advice and guidance (CIAG) at centres, in partner locations, online as well as over the phone and using social media.
We also work in partnership with partners to deliver a range of related services, including:
- Supporting schools to engage with employers to improve students’ understanding of the world of work;
- Providing support for schools with their Careers and World of Work (CWoW) curriculum, including working towards our Careers Wales Mark
Careers Wales also supports specific Welsh Government projects including:
- Jobs Growth Wales
- Apprenticeship Matching Service (AMS)
- Individual Skills Gateway support to unemployed adults
- ReACT - redundancy support programme for adults
Further details are included in our Business Plan.The requirements for our services are set out in our annual remit letter from Welsh Government and these are underpinned by the Articles of Association for CCDG and the Framework Document between the Welsh Government and CCDG.
