The career opportunities within the landscape industry (Occupational Webinar series)

01/10/2020 10:30 - 11:30 View

For many people, landscaping is not a first-choice career, and this is often down to a lack of knowledge or appreciation of the many and varied roles the industry contains. In this webinar, Stephen Ensell, Education Officer with the British Association of Landscape Industries (BALI), will break down the myths, such as ‘it’s just gardening isn’t it’? As well as exploring the roles within the industry and opportunities for progression. He will look at the broad range of skills that landscapers hold, showing just how diverse these are and that often, no two days in landscaping are the same. This means the sector caters for the creative, practical, analytical, and scientific interests that school leavers and career changers may have. He will go into the details of education options, including full and part time qualifications as well as the apprenticeships that are available. All of this will be underlined with up to date facts and figures from industry, helping you understand and outline landscaping as a great career choice.

Embedding Digital Career Literacy (including Social Media) within Careers Education and Guidance programmes (Free Webinar)

07/10/2020 13:00 - 14:00 View

Advanced technologies and circumstances accelerated by the Covid-19 pandemic are significantly impacting the way the employment market is accessed. This requires young people to develop and utilise digital skills and competencies (including social media) to learn, apply for training and job opportunities and to plan and manage their careers. To facilitate this, careers professionals need to review their careers education and employability programmes to ensure they adequately address these developments. Presented by John Ambrose, Strategic Director of Complete-Careers LLP, this session will cover the digital and technological elements that should now play an essential part in a relevant and up-to date careers programme.

Labour market intelligence, same or different? The career development professional and LMI post-Covid-19 (Expert Training Online)

20/10/2020 09:30 - 11:30 View

The current labour market is looking considerably different to how it looked at the beginning of the year. This two-hour interactive Masterclass aims to update careers advisers and careers leaders on what the current UK labour market looks like and how different it might look as we come out of the current pandemic situation. With a particular focus on those working with young people approaching the end of school, sixth form or college, it will highlight areas of understanding as well as useful LMI resources for both careers professionals and young people themselves. The session will also take a candid look at the impact of Covid-19 on the labour market – the sectors and groups of people that are likely to be the hardest hit – and whether the key messages for young people are essentially the same or need reviewing.
