CDI Conference for Practitioners 2023

The Conference took place on Wednesday 6 December 2023 online with over 200 attendees from across the career development sector. 


The Conference is focused on supporting career development practice in all its forms – supporting young people and adults, in education settings, public and third sector services, the corporate environment and private practice. Alongside keynote talks and panel sessions, the Conference includes a series of workshops covering themes relevant to all areas of careers education, information, advice, and guidance. It is an ideal opportunity to gain valuable professional development and insight into new ideas, as well as discussing best practice with fellow practitioners.

The CDI Conference is being held as an online event to enable as many people as possible to attend by keeping the cost low during the cost of living crisis and minimising travel time.

Why attend?

Continuous learning is a cornerstone of being a professional, whether that’s through gaining new experience, reflecting on previous interactions, gathering feedback or attending CPD events such as this one. Your attendance today is an important part of maintaining and further developing your knowledge and skills, benefiting you and your clients.

We limit the keynote talks and the panel sessions to focus on a few key topics that will be of interest to everyone. Then the bulk of the day gives you an array of options with up to seven concurrent workshops on topics covering all areas of practice.

You might choose workshops focused on enhancing your current area of practice, or you might want to mix and match with new areas or broader themes such as using theory and research in practice, supporting more diverse clients or learning about the latest technology.

This enables you to make this your conference, creating an agenda that best suits your needs and interests.


This conference is aimed at all careers professionals, regardless of your area of practice or where you work in the UK and beyond.
