Welsh Government to take over careers firm

The Welsh Government is to take into public ownership a company which runs careers information and advice services across Wales. The firm, Career Choices Dewis Gyrfa, was created from the six former Careers Wales companies which used to operate. Its board has agreed to the takeover.

Deputy Minister for Skills, Jeff Cuthbert, says that the transfer will take effect from next April subject to reaching agreement on CCDG's pension liabilities.
