Since developing the very first careers education quality award in 1996, Investor in Careers has helped hundreds of educational institutions achieve and maintain their Quality in Careers Award. As a proud Licensed Awarding Body for the National Quality in Careers Standard, we continue to work with over 350 schools and colleges across the UK, from the Isles of Scilly, The Channel Islands, London to Yorkshire, Cheshire and Northern Ireland; directly or through our network of approved regional sub licence holders.

“The Quality in Careers Standard through Investor in Careers suited our school because of the logical structure – Commitment, Organisation, Delivery and Evaluation.”
