Career Guidance gives people a goal, a purpose, and a sense of self-determination.

It gives them belief in themselves and hope for the future.

The PACE Research Institute is the research arm of PACE Career Centre (est. 1991). We are a social benefit organisation in the career guidance space. Over the past 28 years our work has benefited over 17 million people. 

Our research efforts impact the quality of career guidance delivery. The results of our research has informed national policy, influenced curriculum design, established career guidance delivery frameworks, and advised citizens.


Our interest is Africa.


Our associates are based in Ghana, Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda, Zimbabwe, and South Africa. Our research solutions are Afrocentric as we work towards Africa's contribution to the global economy.
