Information, advice and guidance (IAG) is a process that provides individuals with support and resources to help them make informed decisions about their education, training, and career choices. IAG can be offered through a variety of channels, including face-to-face meetings, telephone consultations, online resources, and group workshops. The aim of IAG is to help individuals identify and achieve their goals, make informed decisions about their future, and overcome any barriers or challenges they may face.

Here are some examples of how IAG can be used:

  • Career guidance: IAG can be used to provide information and advice about different career paths, job opportunities, and the skills and qualifications required for different roles.

  • Education and training: IAG can be used to provide information about different education and training options, such as courses, apprenticeships, and qualifications, as well as the funding and support available.

  • Personal development: IAG can be used to help individuals identify their strengths, weaknesses, and areas for development, and to provide advice and guidance on how to develop their skills and abilities.

  • Progression: IAG can be used to help individuals plan and progress their career, by identifying opportunities for further education, training, or promotion.

  • Support: IAG can be used to provide support and guidance to individuals who are facing personal or professional challenges, such as redundancy, unemployment, or a change in circumstances.

Overall, IAG is a valuable resource that can help individuals to make informed decisions about their future and achieve their goals, by providing them with the information, advice, and guidance they need to succeed.
