I have a few questions:
Do you feel there is such a difference between working as a careers professional with young people and working as a careers professional with adults that we really require two different qualifications?
Do you think we need a different knowledge base? Do we need different skills or do we use the same skills in different ways?
Why do you think it is that the adult qualification will be only half the size of the QCG? Does working with adults really require less knowledge or fewer skills, hence a shorter programme of study?
I personally wonder if there are not as many differences between the work with different groups of adults (professionals, women returners, unemployed, ex prisoners etc) as there are differences between working with young people and adults?
What do you think? I am currently working on developing the Adult Diploma and would really like to have your thoughts.
