NDA Submission to Department of Education and Skills Consultation on Review of Career Guidance
The Department of Education and Skills undertook a review of career guidance called ‘Guidance for All’. In response to this review the NDA outlined the department’s commitment to developing capacity within the career guidance service to support all leaners with disabilities in the Comprehensive Employment Strategy for Persons with Disabilities 2015 – 2024 ( CES action 1.7). In addition the NDA focused on the need to develop an effective model of career guidance for special education schools and on the opportunity to enhance enterprise engagement with the education and training system for students with disabilities.
The NDA stressed the importance of ensuring that guidance is connected to and informed by future skills need for the labour market, particularly given the varied career opportunities that are opening up in a changing market place.
