Foundations of Careers Advisers Knowledge (11-18)

10th October 2018-9:30 am - 4:30 pm


The Foundations of Careers Advisers Knowledge
The essential knowledge that Careers Advisers need to work in schools and FE Colleges in England (11-18)

“The day was great, would highly recommend to any individual starting out as an Adviser”

Training led by Andy Gardner, who has worked continuously as a Schools Careers Adviser for 33 years. He is also an experienced Careers Writer, Trainer and Speaker
Who it is for?
• Recent entrants to the Career Development Profession who need short-sharp training on the essential knowledge required to begin to undertake one-to-one Careers Advice in a school or college (11-18)
• Career Development Professionals who are refocussing their work.
• Careers Leaders in schools and colleges wanting to know more about Careers Advice and Guidance
• Other staff who are interested in the Foundations of Careers Adviser knowledge
What will it involve? One day training concentrating on knowledge, but also looking at other factors such as Careers Guidance Skills, Gatsby Benchmarks and the context within which Careers Advisers work in.
How will it be delivered Using a “Snapshot and Signposting” delivery method will allow us to cover a lot of content in a short period of time. The day itself and possible follow-up exploration could easily meet the 25-hour CDI Registered Career Development Professional Requirement and relates clearly to Gatsby Benchmarks 7 and 8 as well as 2,3 and 4. Numbers are limited to allow time for questions and interaction.

Why The Career Development Profession faces a chronic talent pipeline problem. This training will help new Careers Advisers work to a level of competence more quickly.

Where  At the CCH/Just IT London Centre in Aldgate East
When Date above
The training is not:
• A substitute for the Qualification in Careers Guidance (or related Masters or NVQs) or Higher Apprenticeship in Career Development, though it would supplement all of them
• A knowledge supplement for Adult or HE Careers Advice and Guidance staff, it is based on knowledge needed to work in Schools and FE Colleges.
• All the knowledge you need, it is just a starting point
