CDI Wales - Members Chat with Canapés

Helping members to keep in touch with Institute developments and with fellow professionals in all sorts of different ways is an important part of the work we do at the Career Development Institute.


Optimising Careers Outcomes for YP SEND

15% of young people of school age have additional needs. The new Careers Strategy places equal emphasis on all education settings to provide quality career provision to all young people. It is therefore essential that all careers professionals, whether working in mainstream, special needs or alternative settings, are able to understand the needs of all the young people with whom they engage and be able to support them to become career ready and achieve their desired career goals. This course will be of interest and value to all career development professionals, particularly careers advisers and careers leaders who have recently undertaken training through the CDI, Teach First and CEC-funded career leader training programmes.
