and The Quality in Careers Standard
Young People's Task Group
The Careers England Board has established four Task Groups to address issues of importance to the membership in services for young people (The Young People's Task Group), adults (The Adults Task Group), all-age quality issues affecting career guidance services (The Quality Task Group), and the all-age Workforce Issues Task Group.
Each of these Task Groups involves senior management/practitioners from within our Membership, nominated by Members. Full Corporate, Affiliate and Associate members may nominate to/join any of the Task Groups. Membership of these Groups can be fluid too, with often a core number being supplemented by colleagues interested in a particular issue from time to time. This ensures that the Groups are able to draw upon direct experiences of those delivering or managing direct delivery of front-line services for the public.
Meetings are not rigidly scheduled to any fixed timetable; rather they take place from time to time as needs/issues arise.
Policy Papers, Discussion Papers, and responses to Government consultations et al are often drafted with direct input from the Task Groups as much as the Board.
Organisations with a direct involvement in the careers business world, and those with an interest in being associated with Careers England would be most welcome to discuss Full, Affiliate or Associate Membership with us. New Members would immediately be invited to nominate Members to join any of the Task Groups.

Young People's Minutes, Terms of Reference and Other Papers produced by/for the Task Groups are housed in the 'Members Only' section.
