The CDI Academy is pleased to offer a taught training programme for the QCF Level 6 Diploma in Career Guidance and Development at venues in Birmingham and London - download the 2020 Brochure.

In response to demands from the sector and the growing awareness amongst politicians and stakeholders of the value of career work, this work-based qualification is designed for practitioners whose role involves providing personal career guidance and development to clients. Successful completion meets the qualification requirement for the UK Register of Career Development Professionals.

The learning programme will build your skills and knowledge, enabling you to motivate and empower individuals of all ages to make effective transitions in learning and work. On successful completion, candidates will receive accreditation from OCR as well as a CDI Certificate.

Bookings are now open for level 6 courses. 

Qualification Structure

The full Level 6 Diploma is a 60 credit qualification achieved through a combination of mandatory (45 credits) and optional units (15 credits). For those on the full level 6 Diploma, the units undertaken will be all the mandatory units plus a choice from the optional units to cover the minimum 15 credits required.

If you already hold Units 21, 22 and 23 (Careers Leadership units) you take the seven mandatory units in order to achieve the full diploma. 

If you already hold a NVQ 4 in Advice and Guidance or LDSS achieved before 2011 you can do Units 2, 3 and 6 in order to meet the qualification requirement for the UK Register of Career Development Professionals. 

 Options to select your programme type are available through the booking form once you have selected your course date. 

Entry Requirements

The Level 6 qualification equates to ordinary degree level so you need to be able to study and produce assignments at this graduate level. You also need to be in a role in which you can produce the evidence for the above units.

New payment option

CDI Courses - Response to Corona Virus outbreak

At present we are proceeding with our learning programmes that are advertised below, subject to getting the minimum number of candidates required for the courses to be viable to run.  We realise that the corona virus outbreak is causing much confusion and concern and we are monitoring developments closely and following advice from Public Health England.  

We are aware that most people choose our courses because they value the face to face nature of our training and we want to continue with this.  However, we may need to delay some training days and/or take a more blended approach which will involve changing the order of the programme so that some modules or parts of modules can be taught via a webinar approach.  

We will continue to provide updates as new information is available but if you  have any questions regarding future courses in the meantime please contact marion.edwards@thecdi.net
