2022 Seminars
14 Nov 2022: Bringing relevant & emerging career theories into everyday practice

The purpose of this Cutting Edge event is to bridge the gap between career theory, practice, and policy.

Career practitioners can strengthen their work and impact by consciously selecting and using career theory to inform their evidence-based practice, as well as advocating for careers work. In this session there is an opportunity to reflect on how practitioners make conscious choices about how and when to embed career theory in their practice. We will also explore new and emerging career theories as well as applying familiar career theories to new contexts.

25 April 2022: LMI under the turbulent influence of the pandemic

Career practitioners often hold diverse views on the role of LMI and aren’t always sure how to interpret LMI information in a meaningful way. As workplaces and labour markets are impacted by economic disruption and government policies it can seem a real challenge to kept abreast of what is happening, and what might be relevant for future career opportunities.

These seminars see colleagues from the world of LMI discussing the purposes, hopes and limitations of their work to start a dialogue with Careers practitioners who utilise that LMI data in their work.
