So what might the result of the election mean for career guidance? Thirteen years ago who would have thought that the world of careers would fare so badly under New Labour? Of course the Tories have promised an all age careers service as our friends and colleagues in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have. But where will the money come from? Particularly remembering that money for career guidance in England is no longer ring-fenced, but put into the coffers of local authorities. The recent strategies (Quality Choice and Aspiration and Impartial Careers Education) seem positive, but what can we expect in the light of public sector cuts? And the Lib Dems? If you live in Doncaster Central, Glasgow North or Runnymede and Weybridge you could vote for some fellow career guidance professionals!
