Abstract

The research was commissioned by the Scottish Office in 1997 to map Careers Service (CS) provision across Scotland and consider its effectiveness after a period of major change to its organisation and management. The research defined effectiveness in terms of the extent to which provision met clients' needs rather than whether Careers Service Companies (CSCs) were operating effectively within their existing resources. The research was focused on the core work of the Careers Service and aimed to consider how well provision met the needs of young people, employers and Training Organisations.
