Master Class : LMI in Career Guidance Practice: Use, Misuse or Lack of Use? (PM Session)

One of the biggest challenges for career practitioners remains how to integrate LMI into career guidance interviews and other career guidance activities. This new training day, led by and Dr Sally-Anne Barnes, Warwick University, will focus on ways of enhancing the effectiveness of LMI as an integral part of overall career interventions. The morning programme will cover the major challenges related to using LMI, with an emphasis on the practical integration and application of LMI in practice, through reflection and exercises. The afternoon will include demonstrations of LMI software and websites, which draw on LMI for All data, from four major providers: U-Explore; Career Companion; icould and CASCAID. Delegate feedback: 'Great to revisit theoretical frameworks and see where LMI fits'; Fantastic PPs - so useful'; 'Full day - ethical dimensions of LMI and information on the gig economy were highlights for me'.
