‘How to help your Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) clients be the very best they can be’ (Free Webinar)

11/06/2019 12:30 - 13:30 View

LGBT people are protected by anti-discrimination law, feature prominently in the media, films and TV as role models and also ‘ordinary’ people. However, many are still very reluctant to be out at work for a range of reasons. As advisors, we hold a privileged position in offering professional, objective, confidential advice and guidance which can make a huge difference to the LGBT community.


Advanced Career Guidance and Coaching Skills

12/06/2019 09:30 - 16:00 View

This master class is designed for experienced practitioners who wish to focus on aspects of practice that cannot be delivered by on-line resources and which require a high level of artistry. The day will be highly practical, exploring a range of tactics and sharing good practice. The approaches used will be suitable for use with a wide range of clients. 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).

Feedback from the first event from a careers adviser: “An excellent day! Great tips and interactions”.


Optimising Careers Outcomes for YP SEND

19/06/2019 09:30 - 16:00 View

15% of young people of school age have additional needs. The new Careers Strategy places equal emphasis on all education settings to provide quality career provision to all young people. It is therefore essential that all careers professionals, whether working in mainstream, special needs or alternative settings, are able to understand the needs of all the young people with whom they engage and be able to support them to become career ready and achieve their desired career goals. This course will be of interest and value to all career development professionals, particularly careers advisers and careers leaders who have recently undertaken training through the CDI, Teach First and CEC-funded career leader training programmes.
