What standards are in place for Careers Advisers?

Guidance for Schools & Colleges

Our advisers all have QCF Level 6 or QCF Level 7 qualifications in Careers Guidance, which is the DfE requirement. This level of qualification allows advisers to register with the Careers Development Institute. Our advisers all have a first degree and trained for their careers guidance qualification via the post graduate route. Advisers are expected to adhere to the highest standards of professional behaviour as set out in the CDI code of ethics.
