Quality Assurance of Career Development Interventions

In response to requests from members the CDI Professional Standards Committee has developed a framework and guidance for the quality assurance of career development interventions. Using this framework will help career development professionals to quality assure their career development interventions and determine any areas which may require development.

The framework is for the use of all career development professionals who carry out one-to-one interventions with clients. It has been developed principally for use with those professionals who work with young people in school/college but can also be used to assess the quality of interventions with other types of client.

It is particularly useful for those professionals who are working in schools/colleges who hold or are working towards the Quality in Careers Standard (QiCS), where quality checks of interventions is a requirement, and especially if the practitioner is self-employed or is employed directly by the school/college and is therefore not subject to quality checks already by their employer.
