In NCUB’s submission to the House of Commons Education Committee inquiry into careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) we highlight the range of work that universities are doing to support their own students and their communities.

We suggest, subject to available resource, increased provision of specialised guidance focused on research and development (R&D) careers, The submission notes the interdependencies between different levels of education that currently exist, the pressure that this puts upon universities and the financial challenges that this creates. Additional resource may be necessary to enable universities to provide long-term support for schemes that are not principally focused on their own students.
