This course starts by examining the legal framework under which schools operate and the basic qualifications structure in the UK. You will then investigate real-world strategies for how schools, as learning organisations, can implement programmes that help young people to make effective career decisions. There is an emphasis on cross-curricular provision of resources and the usage of Labour Market Information (LMI) to help with career planning.
By the end of the course, you will have a clear understanding of the theoretical aspects of career learning and development as well as the practical implications for their delivery within your school or college.
Contact time at the University will be six full days, which are spread over six months.
During the six days at the University you will learn in small groups through informal workshops. We encourage you to share practical experiences and to explore good practice. The course leader has over 25 years’ experience of working in Career Education and Guidance as a practitioner, manager and trainer.
Assessment methods include a written case study that demonstrates your understanding of theories of career choice, a report on the careers education and guidance provision in your school/college, and a presentation.
We usually require applicants to have an honours degree.
There are no other specific entry requirements. We encourage you to contact us if you think the course could be useful in terms of helping your pupils/students and continuing your own professional development.
