Strengthening Careers Education and Guidance in Schools – Building on the Revised Statutory Guidance

01/10/2014 09:30 - 16:00

Three regional conferences which will explain the implications of the revised Statutory Guidance for policy and practice and bring focus to a key aspect – effective engagement with employers. The workshop sessions have been chosen because they are of the moment and will cover: managing careers guidance contracts; developing employability skills; collecting destinations data and bringing employers into schools. The four conference venues are: Central London; York and Birmingham. Feedback from the York event: • Useful to receive latest documents and updates; the templates are very useful for planning how to research providers and what we will need • Excellent – gave me an awful lot to think about and will put 100% of it into practice. Perfect start to the academic year. • A good opportunity to listen to speakers on topics that influence my professional practice. • Very useful to hear about the latest CEIAG policy developments and how these will impact on guidance activities in schools. • A good mix of presentation/workshops, interesting and well-pitched. Good quality overall. • Very relevant and good mix of theory with solutions/strategies. Wish I could have attended all the workshops!

Motivating clients – inspirational and creative techniques


The possession of a positive mindset is critical for effective career management and yet many clients struggle with confidence, fear and ambivalence. In this one day master class we will explore the theory of motivation and experiment with a range of motivational techniques for use with clients of all ages and life situations. The day will be practical and draw on solution focused, cognitive behavioural coaching, a bit of NLP and motivational interviewing, with a theme of what will inspire/ motivate clients.
