    Hello,
    just read the entry requirtemtns on this website that you need to take the Qualification in Careers Guidance (QCG) / Postgraduate Diploma in Careers Guidance at university.

    Does anyone know about this and is it worth it since I got an interview for it ?

    The people I know who work in this area qualified while working at the same time, getting some generic NVQ in information, advice and guidance (IAG), probably as a condition of their employment or as part of their CPD. The idea of going to university to get a qualification in career's guidance seems like a complete waste of money and time to be honest. Check your local college to see what they offer in terms of mentoring and IAG stuff first.

    This kind of work has completely dried up as far as I can see though so I would consider your options.
