Centre for Career and Personal Development offer new online course

The Centre for Career and Personal Development at CCCU is currently recruiting for a new type of career guidance course.
The Certificate in Career Guidance and Development is now available through the ‘e-learning’ option of studying solely through their pc.   This is an online version of the popular course which is now available to people anywhere.   This is aimed at careers practitioners who need to boost their qualifications to meet the Level 6 requirement.  It covers the underpinning theory for the new work-based Level 6 qualification.  This certificate can also provide a stepping stone to later complete the MA in Career Guidance.
The course covers:
  1. Introduction to reflective practice.  
  2. An overview of Career Guidance theory and its application. 
  3. An overview of Career Development theory and its application.
  4. Approaches to equality and diversity – opportunities and challenges for career guidance practice.
  5. Labour market research, trends and theory. 
And is delivered 100% online through lectures, case studies, discussion groups and tutorial feedback. Assessment involves undertaking two short pieces of work: a Reflective Evaluation of a 1:1 guidance session with a client and  a Report on an aspect of the Labour Market. These are also submitted and marked online.
Access the course materials online through your computer
Alison Fielding and Rebecca Tee, Senior Lecturers at CCPD, said:  “For those wanting to study from home, who want to design their own learning around other commitments and who need to get a Level 6 qualification wherever they live, this e:learning option is ideal.” 
We are recruiting throughout the year.  Contact us for more information about this and any of our programmes and courses:
