Our Personal Guidance Fund will support the development of innovative, cost-effective models for delivering personal careers guidance in schools and colleges.

Funded projects will be used to develop case studies to showcase successful and affordable delivery of Gatsby Benchmark 8 - providing personal guidance. We will then use these case studies to develop guidance to support the scaling of emerging practice across all schools and colleges. 

The government's Careers Strategy highlights the importance of personal guidance.
