What is the impact of the changes to the careers service on young people?

Clare, a mum with primary school aged children, asks about careers advice.  She has noticed that the careers service has become more fragmented so are children and young people getting a good service?

Professor Ann Hodgson talks about how the changes in careers guidance has affected young people as they make important decisions about their future after GCSEs.  She refers to a recent LGA report about the transition of guidance from local authorities to schools.  She also discusses when careers advice could start and how it should change throughout a child’s school career.
