March saw the exciting launch of our new Network4Careers. The Centre for Career & Personal Development (CCPD) hosted 50 people from the careers world in a gathering at our Medway campus to listen to speakers and make contacts with like-minded people in similar roles.
Current and past students from CCPD joined careers teachers, lecturers and employers’ representatives in the first of a programme of events designed to forge new strong links between people working in an increasingly atomised working environment.

Those attending welcomed the network as a rare forum to meet others in a relaxed and friendly environment and said it was the perfect place to get to know people in careers work in the South East; to find out about current practice, and learn more about the changing world of careers guidance, advice and counselling.
Tea and cakes were served and two presentations were given. The first was by Tony Watts, CCPD’s Visiting Professor, about his view of the current careers scene and the second was by Rebecca Corfield Tee, freelance careers expert and senior lecturer at CCPD, on her 10 Top Tips for giving successful presentations.
