|Abstract: ||This paper analyses the current information available (in July 2011) about the changes that are taking place in
careers work following recent government policy initiatives and public-sector austerity measures. In particular, it
examines the local developments that have emerged in relation to a national policy context in which:
• Existing careers work is being radically reconfigured.
• The new National Careers Service (NCS) will principally serve adults (apart from its telephone/web-based
services, which will cover young people too).
• Securing careers guidance for young people has been made the responsibility of schools.
• The requirement for schools to provide careers education has been removed.

• In particular, there is continuing confusion about the future relationship of remaining face-to-face
Connexions services to the NCS, and about the branding of such services.
Implications for Connexions services, Local Authorities, schools, new market players and the careers profession
