Progress Careers (formerly known as CareersInc) delivers high-quality, flexible Careers Education, Information, Advice, and Guidance (CEIAG) services to schools. We support schools and educational institutions to fulfil their responsibility to provide students with high-quality, external, and impartial CEIAG. Each of our Careers Advisers are hand-selected for their knowledge, passion, and commitment to delivering outstanding CEIAG.

Our approach is based on a 5-phase framework for action; this ensures young people can access the most appropriate CEIAG for their needs and aspirations. Our service is aligned to the Gatsby Benchmarks and supports schools in working towards meeting the Gatsby Benchmarks. The Benchmarks seek to set out what good careers guidance should look like in England.

  1. Understand the needs of the school and their students
  2. Identify required CEIAG interventions that align to the Gatsby Benchmarks
  3. Deliver impartial careers services through the likes of one-to-one sessions, careers sessions and assemblies
  4. Raise aspirations and allowing these to be realised
  5. Support schools to meet their statutory careers regulations
  6. Manage post-16 transitions and tracking, reporting on this regularly

At Progress Careers, we deliver a 360-degree service that supports schools to deliver a comprehensive careers education programme. From offering a bespoke face-to-face CEIAG service, to providing high-quality careers resource packs, our holistic approach ensures schools are fulfilling their responsibilities to their students. Our approach is based on a 5-phase framework for action; this ensures young people can access the most appropriate CEIAG for their needs and aspirations. Our service supports schools in working towards meeting the Gatsby Benchmarks, and our management team work in partnership with school career leads to establish how our service can enhance the overall careers programme and delivery. The Benchmarks seek to set out what good careers guidance should look like in England.

We deliver exceptional standards of impartial Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance to multi-academy trusts, local authority and independent secondary schools. No matter the size or composition of the school, our commitment to standards remains the same and we achieve this through our personalised approach to advice and guidance, which really places the student at the heart of what we do.
