Aimed at career practitioners who are self-employed, run their own business or do careers work in organisations this webinar will provide an opportunity to connect with peers and hear about what the CDI has done since it began in April 2013, the UK Register of Career Development Professionals and the different routes to getting recognised; especially those available to people who do not hold one of the approved qualifications. You will also learn about the CDI Community of Interest for Independent Coaches and Consultants and how you can become involved.
For some people, speaking in public is their greatest fear. Even those who enjoy it often feel they could improve their skill. After all, for a careers practitioner, being able to stand in front of a sceptical crowd of students or parents and inspire and engage them may change the course of their lives. This highly participative workshop will explore how public speaking can shape hearts and minds and introduce you to techniques that will enable you to hold your audience's attention, while speaking with confidence and conviction. Delegate feedback from previous courses: "Excellent structure and content - I've certainly learned a great deal"; "Engaging, personable and informative - I can't wait to use my new skills."
In the changing world of career development services, managers are required to understand the importance of staff engagement, innovative thinking and taking advantage of new opportunities. New delivery models and changing requirements to meet contractual agreements and targets can seem daunting to the practitioner and be potentially disabling to the organisation.
The CDI is delighted to be working with NICEC on this series of conferences which focus on linking research to practice. 'Careers strands in Developing Scotland’s Young Workforce' is our first NICEC/CDI event to be held in Scotland and both members and non-members are encouraged to attend. The Scottish Government has embarked on a major, seven-year Strategy to address the stubborn challenge of youth unemployment. Central to the successful implementation of the Strategy will be the work of career development professionals. This research-based conference will focus on five key career themes that underpin the Developing Scotland’s Young Workforce Strategy and will examine the lessons for practice from relevant research studies and development projects undertaken in recent years by NICEC Fellows and others, including Skills Development Scotland. Keynote speaker: Professor Anthony Finn, University of Glasgow.
The full programme is a two day event, although each day is self-standing: you can choose to attend for either: Day 1, Day 2 or both days consecutively.
Day 1: Developments in Guidance Theory: A practical guide
Day 2: Advanced Career Guidance and Coaching
Feedback from our January 2015 course: "Excellent programme - I feel more confident and can't wait to try some of the activities"; "Very useful course both as a reminder and introduction to new concepts and ways of doing things."
This introductory session will aim to raise awareness of the theory’s main tenets and look at how the theory may be helpful on coaching (including career coaching) scenarios. Using real stories and illustrative materials the theory will be ‘unpacked’ in a fun and active way. The webinar will also support delegates in finding out more and how to get trained in TA.
We are delighted to inform members that well-known author, CDI member and career coach, John Lees has designed a new one-day training course, for the CDI.
This interactive workshop will offer a range of insights into career decision making. The workshop is practical in focus, providing an introduction to a range of unique tools and approaches designed by John, many of which are featured in his books.
This packed programme will provide a basis to help you deliver more effective career coaching programmes and includes a wealth of underpinning skills and knowledge.
Feedback from September's training event:• "Superb! What a highly relevant and professional CPD event"; • "Some really good learning points raised by highly knowledgeable practitioners"; • "Impossible to pick a piece that was least useful".
