"working towards the national validation for CEIAG Quality Awards - The Quality in Careers Standard"
What is Career Mark?
Career Mark is a quality standard and framework for good practice and provision in CEIAG for young people.
This award is for all learning organisations, including schools, pupil support centres, colleges and work-based learning providers.
The standards were written by a team of careers education specialists from Careers Consortium (East Midlands) Limited, representing Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire and Nottinghamshire.
The standards are constantly revised to reflect national changes in requirements and developments in good practice.
Career Mark has now been updated to take into account the new legislation related to careers guidance. Career Mark 6 is now available to work towards.
