Lord McNicol, a current member of the House of Lords and former General Secretary of the Labour Party, will be one of nine inaugural BAIG members. Members have been appointed for their diverse range of skills and include business executives, education leaders, career guidance specialists and leaders from youth organisations such as The Scout Association.
The remit of BAIG is to support and provide advice to Dev Clever and its executives regarding the development and global rollout of its careers guidance platform, to provide thought leadership in the progression of global careers advice to young people, professionals, institutions, employers and parents / guiders across the world, and to positively influence the development of careers policy across different countries.
BAIG will meet quarterly, with its first meeting scheduled for late March 2021.
Lord McNicol said: “I am delighted to become the Chairman of the BAIG. Dev Clever instantly aligned with my personal passion to ensure the youth of today are given the best start through effective careers advice and professionals are supported on their journeys. Dev Clever’s use of VR technology is engaging and exciting, and I believe provides an excellent support for careers development. I look forward to chairing BAIG’s first meeting and providing counsel to the business while learning from a broad and diverse range of voices about careers development and advice across the world.”
