Labour market intelligence, same or different? Adult clients and LMI post Covid-19 (Expert Training Online)

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 career coaches working with adults 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 adults, it will highlight areas of understanding as well as useful LMI resources for both advisers and clients to use themselves. The session will 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 are essentially the same or need reviewing.

Delivering career guidance and coaching via telephone and video (Expert Training Online)

This expert training online session is aimed at career practitioners who deliver or intend to deliver career guidance and coaching via the medium of telephone and video. The content focuses on in-depth guidance and coaching rather than tracking or cold calling. During the session we will explore how the skills and methods of face-to-face work can be creatively applied to telephone and video, rapidly building rapport and using multi-sensory tactics to fully engage clients and address their career development needs. The workshop will be led by Liane Hambly, Career Development Consultant. Liane uses these media in her own coaching practice. Feedback from a previous masterclass: "Brilliant training session. The content was spot on, so thank you! I have to say that's undoubtedly the best £75 I've ever spent."
