Subject to the passage of the Education Bill, schools will be responsible for securing independent careers guidance for their pupils from September 2012. We will be consulting on extending the duty to colleges in due course. Schools and colleges will be free to determine their local arrangements, including decisions relating to the local funding of careers guidance. Online and helpline services currently funded by the Department for Education will, during the academic year 2011/12, be integrated with those for adults as part of the establishment of a National Careers Service.
