Breaking News – the New National Careers Service Web site is launched.

The New National Careers Service Web Site ( replacing the Next Step web Site)  was launched on 5 April 2012 and will offer independent and impartial information and advice on learning and work.

Combining face to face to face local advice with a new interactive website, the new National Careers Service will:

  • Provide information and advice for approximately 370,000 young people through the use of the helpline and website.
  • Offer face to face advice to 700,000 adults each year in a range of locations in local communities.
  • Provide detailed sector by sector labour market information so people can discover which industries are growing in their area.
  • Provide tools such as a CV builder and a Skills Health Check on the website to help people identify their skills strengths and gaps.
  • Allow people to open a Lifelong Learning Account, which gives them clear information and advice on skills, careers and financial support in a single, personalised online space.

The Work Club will continue to work closely with the National Careers Service Local Providers.

A full description and document  of the new Service is downloadable  from the BiS web site.
