Getting to Chartered Status: Understanding the views of stakeholders: Final report
In 2021, The Career Development Institute (CDI) commissioned the International Centre for Guidance Studies (iCeGS) at the University of Derby to undertake scoping research into the potential for the career development sector to petition for a Royal Charter. The research was summarised in an article in Career Matters (Moore, 2021). The scoping research highlighted the need to understand the views of stakeholders about their feelings about becoming a chartered profession. This second phase of research has been commissioned to understand the implication and views of all those involved in the field of career development (for ease, referred to throughout this report as ‘the sector’).
This research captured the views of 657 individual research participants using an online survey, individual interviews and focus groups and it engaged practitioners working across all areas of career development practises and geographical locations across the UK, and beyond. This is an important piece of research which will inform the strategic decision making, not just of the CDI but other stakeholders who operate across the career development sector. The research data has provided answers to many questions and has provided a picture of the commitment of those working across all aspects of career development to have their professional practise recognised and to have opportunities to have their competence validated.
