and The Quality in Careers Standard
LSIS, former Lifelong Learning UK (LLUK) sector skills coverage of careers guidance
LLUK was the Sector Skills Council for career guidance matters across the UK. As a leading employer voice, Careers England has been a founder member of its �Constituency Panel� for career guidance, and Sue Gale represented Careers England on this panel.
Careers England was also represented on LLUK's "Country Panel" covering the whole of the LLUK "footprint" of services and professions for England.
During 2011 this changed, as LLUK ceased to hold its licence as an SSC, and Careers England joined others in the sector seeking to ensure both that careers guidance matters are within the 'footprint' of an SSC and that Careers England continues to represent the leading employer voice for England's careers services on the future SSC arrangements. With the UKCES decision to close the LLUK licence, LSIS was appointed (March 2011) by UKCES to continue the SSC work on the careers guidance footprint for the UK (news which Careers England has welcomed). Sue Gale has continued to be CE's nominee on the Constituency Panel whilst it has continued its work.
The future of this area of activity remains uncertain. Hence Careers England will continue to work with LSIS and others to advocate the case to the UKCES for careers guidance to be covered by an SSC so that a more permanent and acceptable arrangement is secured for the future.
