This thesis describes the process for developing a methodology for evaluating the impact of Career Guidance interventions. The first paper gives the results of a systematic literature review which set out to summarise the current range of methodologies published in peer reviewed journals since 1987. This identified the wide range of methodologies and outcome measures being used which made the it hard to compare and accumulate evidence. The recommendations that arose from the study were to develop a framework that could be used to guide and combine results from different studies together with the development of a measure that could be used as a benchmark by a wide range of researchers and practitioners. This led to an empirical study which involved the development of a potential benchmark measure which was then piloted on two very different samples to establish both its usability, acceptability, reliability and sensitivity.
