FROM CAREER GUIDANCE TODAY: AN INDEPENDENT PUBLISHING MAGAZINE

ICG Through The Ages

ICG provides an historic look back for new members who may not know the rich history of the Institute

At the 1992 Career Guidance conference in Lancaster, a document was distributed entitled Through the Ages: Career Guidance and the Institute.

This document listed each ICG president, conference venue and the key developments that had taken place within the Institute and the wider careers world from 1917. It was very well received by members and conference delegates.

In 2005, a revised and updated version of the document was produced and I would urge all ICG members to e-mail Simon Ashby at simon@icg-uk.org to obtain a copy. The publication will give members a great insight into the roots of the Institute and an historical perspective on how the careers world has developed.

Within this article in CGT we have listed each president and just a few of the significant developments, but for a more comprehensive look e-mail ICG for a copy today.
