Making the transition into HE career development work (Expert Training Online)

This expert training online session is aimed at career practitioners who are interested in working in a careers and employability setting in Higher Education. During the session we will explore the current environment in which HE careers services operate, including some of the political, social, economic and technological challenges. We will also identify the key skillsets that HE services are looking for in new recruits, and the wide range of roles that may be available. The course will then help delegates to identify next steps and resources to use to maximise their chances of making the transition to HE career development work. The course will be led by Sarah Warburton and Paul Gaunt, Lecturers in Career Development and Management, who between them have worked in eight university careers services, in a variety of management, student-facing, and employer-facing roles.
