NAEGA is a practitioner organisation for the adult career guidance sector and one of the founding organisations which make up the Career Development Institute (formerly the Careers Profession Alliance). We are run by members for members, bringing together practitioners providing adult career guidance across the UK. Our members work in many settings including the National Careers Service, further and higher education, community education and the voluntary sector.
The new Career Development Institute (CDI) brings together all the different professional bodies within the sector under the umbrella term ‘career development’. The Career Development Institute will be a membership organisation representing, promoting and championing the work of career development practitioners regardless of where they work. It will also host the new Register of Career Development Professionals available on the Careers Profession Alliance website. The CDI will officially launch in 2013. The plan is that NAEGA will dissolve at the end of March (along with the other three founding associations – ACEG, ICG and ACPI).
From mid December, NAEGA members can join the CDI (free of charge until 31 March 2013), provided that they agree to abide by the institute’s rules and ethical code, and to undertake at least 20 hours of continuing professional development every year. The CDI prospectus outlines future plans. Those who become members of CDI and who hold an appropriate qualification can also apply to join the CDI Professional Register and become ‘Registered Career Development Professionals’.
