In most countries its existence is strongly dependent on public funding. This requires that we are able to engage with policy makers positively and on their terms. There is a good evidence base that suggests that career guidance is effective, that it can have an impact on policy goals and that it can have an impact on economic policy. Career guidances capacity to increase human capital and social capital and smooth transitions are key to its economic impact.
