Twice each year NICEC and the Career Development Institute collaborate on a Cutting Edge event for practitioners. This session seeks to share examples of how digital transformation is impacting the way careers support and services are being provided. We will challenge careers practitioners to consider how client expectations and behaviour is influencing how and when they want to ‘consume’ careers guidance and information. We’ll also consider the theoretical and practical implications for career practitioners of the shift towards digital.


NICEC is a Learned Society with a network of Fellows, in the UK and abroad, who are career education and counselling researchers and practitioners drawn from a wide range of settings. Fellows believe passionately in improving policy and practice through discovering and sharing evidence and developing career education and counselling theory.  We share our knowledge and learn from others through our Seminar series, the NICEC Journal and our publications.  There are close working links with the CDI including through the delivery of two Cutting Edge events each year.
