This report looks at whether the provision of Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG) makes a difference to the work and learning outcomes of individuals.

It showed that the provision of Advice and Guidance (A/G) does result in more positive outcomes than offering Information only (I).

A/G users had more contact with a larger number of providers and sought help with careers in greater proportions than I users. The A/G group were significantly more likely to have undergone changes since their intervention as a result of the help they had received.
