Embedding Social Media within Career Education and Guidance

01/12/2016 09:30 - 16:00 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 (including social media) to learn about/apply for training and job opportunities and to plan and manage their careers. To facilitate this learning careers professionals need to review their careers education and employability programmes to ensure they adequately address these developments. This lively interactive course has been designed to help career educators and career advisers gain a better understanding of how social media plays an essential part in a relevant and up-to date careers programme.
