The Targeted Information, Advice and Guidance Service (TIAG) provides independent and impartial careers guidance to encourage, support and enable young people to get into education, employment and training.
We have a statutory duty to provide this support to the following young people:
- aged 13 - 24 who have an Education, Health and Care Plan
- aged 13 - 24 who are in care or care leavers
- aged 16-19 and not in education, employment or training (NEET)
- aged 16-18 and working with the Youth Offending Service
If you don’t fall into any of these categories but need support, your school, academy, advanced learning centre or further education provider has a statutory duty to provide careers guidance to their learners. See your education provider for details.
