The National Career Development Guidelines

The National Career Development Guidelines (NCDG) are a framework for building and evaluating comprehensive career development programs for youth and adults in a variety of settings.

Educators, counselors, career development professionals, or administrators can create high quality career development programs for youth and adults in a variety of settings that:

  • Help students acquire skills theyll need to transition successfully to postsecondary training or a job after high school;
  • Help students achieve more by linking classroom study to future choices; and
  • Help adults acquire new skills and move through career transitions.

This Web site describes the NCDG framework and shows how teachers, parents, counselors, administrators and career development professionals can use the framework to help youth and adults acquire key personal, education and career management skills.
