Personal Branding

18/01/2017 09:00 - 16:30 View

Personal Branding is fast becoming the key to professional and personal success. This experiential one-day workshop has been designed, by personal brand consultant Nigel James, to provide career practitioners with the tools and techniques to give their job seeking the ‘edge’ in today’s rapidly changing landscape. Social networking sites such as LinkedIn are increasingly taking over from CVs and recruiters are increasingly using social media to vet and sift candidates. The day will cover: building your skills and talents into a world class contemporary LinkedIn profile; practical tools to effectively build your Personal Brand; developing a web presence and using the full range of digital and traditional networking techniques to increase your chances, and those of your clients, of getting that ‘Ideal Job or Contract’.

Quotes from recent delegates: "I found the day so useful – it reminded me why I love the job" (University IAG Outreach Adviser); "A very interesting and inspiring training day - am feeling re-energised! " (Career Coach); "I found the day very informative, interesting, refreshing and it has given me some much needed new ideas on how to work with the pupils at my school" (School Careers Adviser).

Introducing quality awards validated by Quality in Careers Standards (QiCS) (Free Webinar)

26/01/2017 15:30 - 16:30 View

A growing number of institutions right across the UK already either hold, or are working towards, one of the careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) quality awards. Quality awards for careers are relevant to all parts of the UK, but there has been a spike in interest, particularly in England since the publication of government recommendations that all schools should work towards a quality award. The aim of this webinar is to raise awareness of specialist careers awards and address the main questions (and concerns) for career professionals about quality award processes – everything from how long it takes to achieve an award to the choice of providers and costs.
