      Teenagers frequently struggle to make informed career choices and often turn to their parents or carers for help. In response to this, the INSPiRED Teenager framework was developed to encourage collaborative career-based learning between parents and carers and their teenage child. A mixedmethods approach was implemented to explore the effectiveness of the two programme delivery formats. The findings show evidence of improving teenagers’ career confidence and career direction clarity and also parents/carers’ understanding of the changing world of work, their ability to have informed conversations with their teenagers, and their confidence and clarity to help their teenager make informed career decisions
