Careers Wales

Career Choices Dewis Gyrfa Ltd (CCDG) is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Welsh Government which was formed on 1 April 2013. Trading as Gyrfa Cymru Careers Wales, we provide the all age, independent and impartial careers information, advice and guidance service for Wales.

We deliver a remit set by the Minister for Education and Skills and support the Welsh Government’s strategic objectives as identified in the Programme for Government and related Welsh Government policies, such as the Youth Engagement and Progression Framework (YEPF).  The overall focus for our service is to help people make effective decisions and become independent in managing their careers.  This includes making realistic career decisions and plans, and ensuring successful progression and positive outcomes for individuals, who we support to gain appropriate training, further learning or employment.  Our work helps to develop the nation’s skills base and to support the effectiveness of expenditure on education and training, thereby contributing to the economic and social well-being of Wales.
