CEC Funded Training for Careers Leaders


Who is this programme for?

Careers Leaders come from state funded schools, colleges, special schools, PRU and Alternative Provision. Some of them have been in this role for several years, whilst others are new to the role of Careers Leader


Purpose of the programme

The overall purpose of the Careers Leader Training programme is to equip and enable Careers Leaders to prepare and implement a strategic plan for developing a careers programme in their organisation that meets the eight Gatsby Benchmarks.


How is the programme structured?

The programme is delivered in person in major towns/cities across England or virtually using Zoom face to face on line training with your cohort and trainer in real time. The five training days are split across seven months. Each day lasts from 9.30 am until 4.30 pm. We expect everyone to attend all five training days in order to meet the CEC attendance requirement. Cohort sizes are a minimum of 8 and a maximum of 12 which enables networking with cohort colleagues.

We offer a non-accredited route and an accredited route leading to the achievement of three OCR Level 6 units in Careers Leadership.
