Using Motivational Tools and Techniques to Support Career Decision Making

18/04/2018 09:30 - 16:00 View

When working with clients of any age the outcomes and actions of an effective career guidance conversation should enable the client to feel empowered and confident to continue their career journey. We use a range of approaches that support the clients understanding of options and choices, carefully balanced with the challenge to the client of how to translate good or limited intentions into meaningful actions. Get this balance right between support and challenge and the client can benefit significantly from the skilled practitioners questioning, listening, reflecting and exchange of information, options and choices creating a client owned set of actions and outcomes.

Engaging the Disengaged - Scotland

20/04/2018 10:00 - 16:00 View

Engaging disengaged clients is always a challenge. This training course will explore three major themes: 1. why clients, particularly adult clients, may not be interested in careers guidance and how we might advocate more effectively for our profession; 2. methods of engagement that practitioners can use, other than face to face meetings, and how these can be used effectively; 3. how digital literacy and "digital inequalities" impact on client engagement with careers services and resources. The course leaders are Dr Marjorie McCrory and Emma Bolger.

Underpinning CIAG with an Evidence Base: Information into Intelligence (Free Webinar)

23/04/2018 14:00 - 15:00 View

The constantly changing nature of the labour market means that access to Labour Market Information (LMI) is essential for careers and guidance staff, to deliver relevant and up-to-date careers information and guidance. However, this LMI may only provide context; arguably, the greater value lies in developing this information into Labour Market Intelligence to help careers staff and advisers support people into – and through - the world of work.

An Introduction to Careers Leadership in Schools

25/04/2018 09:30 - 16:00 View

For once there is huge consensus in the sector - CEIAG is changing and the new curriculum acknowledges the need for a new role, that of the career leader. In England responsibility for careers guidance for young people has been transferred to individual schools. At the same time, there has been a growth in the number of organisations offering support to schools. For all the components to be brought together into a coherent programme there needs to be clear leadership from within the school. Consultant and writer David Andrews, will explain the breadth of the role; quality assuring a careers strategy for the school; managing the delivery of careers education and IAG; networking with external partners and coordinating the contributions of careers teachers and wider school team. Feedback from the last course: "Met my need and exceeded my expectations" · 'Recommended to those new to the post & those who have been careers leaders for years very good to clarify role' · "David was a fantastic trainer with a wealth of experience and knowledge within careers" · 'Informative, engaging and relevant.'

Digital Career Management (Free Webinar)

30/04/2018 16:00 - 17:00 View

Advanced technologies of the 21st century are significantly impacting the way the employment market is accessed. This requires young people (and adults) to develop and utilise digital skills and competencies using social media to learn about/apply for training and job opportunities and to manage their career. To facilitate this career professionals need to fully understand the nature of social media and wider digital career literacy within careers guidance and to develop their own knowledge of how to enhance a personal brand.
