NICEC-CDI: Reflective practice in action - Developing new ways of conceptualising our work in supporting career transitions and social mobility

07/11/2019 09:30 - 16:00 View

Twice each year NICEC and the CDI collaborate on a Cutting Edge event for practitioners, with a focus on putting research into practice (these events are free for CDI members and NICEC Fellows). This event builds on NICEC’s Bill Law Student Award: each of our main contributors were shortlisted for the award and they will be sharing their research (see full programme for details). You will be encouraged to reflect on the relevance and insights of the research for your own practice building on the core themes and concepts that are relevant to careers work wherever you practice. The session may also provide some inspiration and guidance for anyone who is considering doing some further study in the field of careers. It will be highly interactive and participative.

Career Education, Information, Advice and Guidance - A webinar to engage and support school-college Governors (Free Webinar)

11/11/2019 15:00 - 16:00 View

School and college governors have a vital role to play in ensuring national guidelines are followed and standards achieved. We can plan the most effective programme of careers education and guidance that hits all agreed benchmarked standards – as outlined in the Statutory Guidance, Gatsby Benchmarks and Quality in Careers Standard - but if we cannot implement it effectively and with fidelity, it will only have limited impact. These 2x1-hour webinars are designed to help school and college governors gain further insights into the value and significant benefits that careers related programmes provide. They will enable governors to better support school and college staff to review current careers education and guidance planning and provision in their institution. They will also assist governors to consider ways to help senior management teams to develop and implement a clear strategic and operational plan, highlighting careers activities, in line with the new guidance.

The Career Equation: A simple model to transform your career conversations with adults (Free Webinar)

13/11/2019 16:00 - 17:00 View

We all know that career conversations can transform lives and outcomes. Yet the careers field has lacked a unified model and shared language for how we define and identify the ideal career for each individual client. The Career Equation is a simple framework that makes it easy for both client and adviser to take the temperature of a current role, identify what drives career fulfillment and hone the criteria to focus their search for their ‘right' work. This webinar will be presented by Erica Sosna of Careers Matters, who works to embed meaningful careers conversations into some of the world’s major organisations, including The Open University, AXA, Savills, Sony Pictures and Mastercard.

CDI Scotland: The brilliant brain … some implications for careers work (Free Webinar)

18/11/2019 16:00 - 17:00 View

Developments in neuropsychology have created a deeper understanding of how we learn, form habits and make decisions, with many previously held beliefs such as the left (rational)/ right (emotional) distinction being debunked. In this webinar, presented by Liane Hambly, we consider how a) the rational and sensory brain can work together to aid career decision making, and b) how a multi-sensory approach can aid career learning. She will draw on cases from her private practice to illustrate how this can be achieved across a range of media, including telephone and video. Liane Hambly is co-author of ‘Creative Career Coaching’ (2019), has over 30 years’ experience in the career development field as a practitioner, university lecturer and freelance trainer.

Masterclass - Preparing for Ofsted as a Careers Leader

21/11/2019 13:30 - 16:30 View

While there are many types of careers leader - those who come from a teaching background, career guidance practitioner background and some who come from industry and other professions - all have one thing in common: they will at some point face the challenge of preparing for Ofsted’s new inspection framework which comes into force in September 2019. This inspection framework includes a new area of judgement called 'personal development', which incorporates most of the work that comes under the auspices of the careers leader. This new masterclass, presented by Janet Colledge, will cover the pertinent requirements of the new Ofsted framework; help careers leaders to support their SLT in understanding the needs of the careers department to meet these requirements; record keeping that Ofsted will expect to see and enable you to feel more confident about planning for Ofsted inspection.

An Introduction to Careers Leadership in Schools and Colleges

21/11/2019 09:30 - 16:00 View

In England responsibility for careers guidance for young people rests with individual schools and colleges. There is a complex web of organisations offering support. The Gatsby benchmarks set out a framework of excellence, encompassing elements of careers education and guidance provided by the school or college and contributions from a range of external partners including careers advisers, and employers. For all the components to be brought together into a coherent programme of career guidance for young people, there needs to be clear leadership from within the school or college.
