The Level 6 Diploma in Career Guidance and Development has been specifically designed for those working in the new Adult Advancement and Career Service, external agency and voluntary service guidance roles, and roles where staff who work in other organisations provide career advice and guidance, information, employability support and signposting as part of their own broader work role.
