Our business goals

To be recognised by public, private and community partners as a valued support service improving the lives of young people and their families and supporting the delivery and development of high quality CEIAG within organisations.

To support individuals, young people, organisations and groups within communities to develop new skills and opportunities, enabling them to reach their true potential through careers advice and guidance interventions by signposting them to volunteering, community projects, training/learning and employment opportunities.

To improve young peoples’ confidence, motivation, and career management skills to improve their life chances. 

To support organisations to promote individual development by sharing our knowledge of progression pathways and the labour market.

To support young people to make a positive contribution to society and the economy whilst encouraging them to achieve their full potential.

To provide a quality, friendly and accountable service to our customers.

We aim to help people make the right decisions about their future, providing the opportunity to reflect on their life choices with objective, non-judgmental, highly qualified careers guidance professional.

To equip young people with the skills to make a successful transition into education, employment and training.

To support organisations to deliver their statutory responsibilities with regard to CEIAG.

To improve the social and economic outcomes for children, young people and families. 

To use our bespoke training packages and careers guidance services to meet needs and fill identified gaps.

To support young people into either volunteering, employment or further education.

To use partnerships, collaborations and links with Statutory and Third Sector agencies, private sector, community groups and projects to support our clients.

To work collaboratively with partners in a multi-agency setting to make a real difference to real lives.  

Outcomes describe the change, benefits, learning, and effects that actually occur as a result of our activities. We wish to measure the ‘value-added’ by our service or ‘distance travelled toward a goal’ as a result of an intervention with a Careers Adviser, whether this be a one-to-one interview, group session or participation on a project. Outcomes can be ‘hard’ (tangible and easily measured), or ‘soft’ (changes in attitude, key skills, personal and practical skills). We recognise that it is important to identify clear indicators of success with the client at the beginning of a project/ intervention.

We achieved the Matrix Standard in 2015, however, when it was due for renewal in May 2018 we decided to take some time out to grow the business. Watch this space, as I am sure we will renew our commitment to the Matrix Standard in the near future.

The Matrix Standard is a nationally recognised, quality framework for organisations to assess and measure their information, advice and/or guidance services, which ultimately supports individuals in their choice of career, learning, work and life goals.
