Careers advice and guidance


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.
