Career Connect

Career Connect is offering Career Leaders the opportunity to sign up for a new fully funded Careers Leaders Programme starting on Thursday 18 March 2021.

Covering three optional units from the (postgraduate) Level 6 Diploma in Career Guidance and Development, the Career Leaders Programme is designed to help people working in a career leadership role to manage career development work, plan and design career-related learning programmes and improve career development within their school or college.

The course is delivered via MS Teams across six sessions on the following dates:

  • Module 1: Thu 18 and Fri 19 March
  • Module 2: Wed 09 and Thu 10 June
  • Module 3: Wed 22 and Thu 23 September

Course assessment is based on work-related challenges, assignments on policy and practice, witness testimonies, development planning and product evidence.  Individual assessor support is available throughout the course.

Fully funded by the Careers & Enterprise Company (CEC) and recognised as an accredited Careers Leader Programme, all participants receive a £1,000 bursary upon completion.

The course has helped previous students gain a better understanding of their job role, clarifying the priorities of the career leadership role in their school or college.  Many have used it as a pathway towards completion of the full Level 6 Diploma.

Former student Sarah Spoor, Careers Leader at Sandfield Park School in Liverpool, says: “The Careers Leader Programme was crucial to my development as a careers leader.  The units and tasks allowed me to develop my professional knowledge and leadership skills and I have been able to build a careers programme with long term strategy for my organisation.  I received excellent support throughout the course, with sessions that allowed time to reflect and share experiences with other professionals.  My fellow students were from a range of backgrounds, providing me with access to a wealth of professional experience from which to learn.”
