Before purchasing any products or services for CEG, consider:

What your students really need in terms of careers experiences, careers information, access to individual guidance, careers education lessons etc

What you already have that works fine?

What your learners or parents want and value?

What you could get for free, or economically from websites or professional organisations, or by working in partnership with others e.g. other schools, to share costs.

As a minimum, students will need:

Access to individual careers guidance

Up to date, comprehensive and impartial careers information

Modern Careers Education activities

Ten Top Tips

Trust your instinct

Is the organisation experienced in CEG delivery?

Communication is key who is the main contact and what about back up?

Look closely at costs – maximise your budget for agreed outcomes

When considering careers education and information resources buy on recommendation

Be really specific about what it is you want the provider to do and achieve including timescales.

What quality measures will you use ?

What processes are in place if things go wrong?

Ask about data protection and what systems the organisation uses

Be prepared to interview prospective providers
