In December 2010, Warwick Institute for Employment Research (IER) and Loughborough University School of Business and Economics initiated an ESRC funded seminar series across the UK and the Republic of Ireland to explore what the future might look like regarding reframed careers services for economic and social growth. The series of six seminars, delivered between December, 2010 and June 2012, has focused on contemporary challenges for the broad community of careers guidance across the different nations, involving employers, trade unions, academics, career trainers, managers and career practitioners. This seventh and final seminar in this prestigious series aims to capture a reflective overview of recent developments and provide a timely contribution to current policy debates about high quality and high performing careers services. It draws upon leading-edge research findings and brings together interested parties to discuss: Looking back and looking forward: What does the future hold for careers services? The seminar will culminate in a policy briefing paper to feed into relevant UK Parliamentary Groups, the National Careers Council in England and other interested parties.
