Progress Careers

Refresh, reframe and rethink your school’s careers advice and guidance

Progress Careers is a vibrant, passionate and friendly bunch of Careers Advisers who place quality at the heart of what we do. All of our team are qualified to Level 6 in Information, Advice and Guidance (or working towards this), so they know their stuff when it comes to Careers Education, Advice and Guidance. 

We are part of a wider group of training and education companies called The Progress Group.

What makes us special

We are committed to helping young people make informed decisions about their post-16 pathways and we do this through a combination of one-to-one and group careers advice services. Our eclectic team of professionals combine their experiences and unquestionable knowledge of careers guidance to engage and inspire young people across Key Stages 3, 4 and 5.  

We work in partnership with our schools to provide a Careers Education, Information, Advice, and Guidance service that is driven by a commitment to quality and a strong understanding of the local market. So, no matter what direction a young person is thinking of going in, your Progress Careers Adviser can help to guide them by informing them of what is available locally to help broaden their horizons and raise their aspirations, so that they can pursue their dreams.
