The National Forum for Lifelong Career Development (NFLCD) was a cross-sector initiative highlighting the importance of quality support for well considered career decisions at transition points throughout an individual's lifetime.
The Forum was operational in 2016 & 2017 but ceased following the announcement that TEC would be developing a national Careers System Strategy.
The Forum's objectives were to:
- Bring together cross-sector stakeholders
- Exchange information / experience at national / regional / local levels
- Explore possibilities for co-operation and co-ordination
- Explore potential collaborations and research
- Develop a framework for greater advocacy through partnerships
- Influence the development of a systemic approach to career development including government policy
NFLCD recognises that appropriate career development is relevant to three main policy areas (Hooley and Dodd (2015) – Careers England):
- The effective functioning of the labour market and, through this, the economy
- The effective functioning of the education system
- Social equity
