Mind the Gap: Driving Job and Career Fulfillment in the Over 50s (Free Webinar)

19/09/2019 12:30 - 13:30 View

With a shrinking working population, a lower immigration quota and employees living longer, people will have to work past traditional retirement age and employers will need to retain these employees and upskill their workforce. How can we, career development professionals, support this growing group to make sure they are able to fulfill their potential and do a job they love in their later lives? This webinar will be led by Nicolette Wykeman and Ruth Winden, who will share their passion for coaching middle aged and older workers and lead discussion about what we can offer to facilitate a longer career for this growing group of people.

Optimising Careers Outcomes for YP SEND

26/09/2019 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.
