What you’ll study
The course aims to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of careers education, information, advice, guidance and coaching. You’ll develop a critical awareness of current developments, debates and insights in the discipline. You’ll apply theory to practice in a range of professional contexts, and will learn about the theoretical perspectives and concepts relating to career development, occupational choice, career planning and transition, and their applications for practice.
Personalisation of learning is a significant element of the course, and you’ll have choice around the content area for your assessment tasks.
On completion, you should be able to reflect upon your practice and performance, and identify CPD and personal development needs – ensuring that you’re able to adapt and respond to the contextual needs of clients, employers and the sector.
Careers and employability
The course will equip you with attributes that are highly sought after by employers in the careers and employability sector. As such, employability is a core theme throughout the course – not only will you have acquired the skills necessary for professional practice within the career development sector, but you’ll be able to apply these perspectives to yourself in order to assist you in managing your own employability.
Through our close links with the sector, you may have the opportunity to network with employers and practitioners at national career development events such as the CDI Student Conference and the National Career Guidance Show.
Upon graduating from the course, there are a range of jobs you can pursue in the career development and employability sector that align to the roles outlined in the CDI’s Career Professionals in the 21st Century – A Blueprint of Learning Outcomes for Professional Roles in the UK Career Development Sector.
