Introduction to Career Development Practice
11 and 12 July 2013
The Introduction to Career Development Practice program (formerly New Careers Practitioners Training Program) is a 2-day program designed to provide initial skill development to newly appointed career practitioners in schools. This program will be available for new career practitioners who will be working with young people in educational settings. The program offers a full range of lectures and workshops outlining the "how to" of developing a careers service, career education programs and counselling services. Experienced mentors from the CEAV membership will guide new career practitioners over a two day period in all aspects of establishing and maintaining a quality career development service. All resources are provided to participants in a CEAV Training Manual for new Career Practitioners. This program offers 15 hours towards continuing professional development.
The Career Education Association of Victoria (CEAV) will be offering Introduction to Career Development Practice programs for newly appointed Career Practitioners in 2013. The program has been designed to cater for new career practitioners working with young people. The program is suitable for career practitioners in schools, ACE and TAFE, Youth Connections and LLEN.
The CEAV has restructured the program so it is more in line with a Training / Induction Program. The Training Program will have spaces for 20 practitioners supported by professionally qualified and highly experienced career practitioners as mentors. This intense training program will be delivered as a series of lectures and small group workshops managed by Career Mentors to support the work of new practitioners. A Training Manual will be provided with activities to be completed during the program. Training workbook, key resources, and handouts will be supplied as part of the training program. The ICDP Program will continue to cover all the required skills and knowledge needed by new career practitioners to ensure they can provide quality career development practices to young people in educational settings.
The program will provide training in:
- Roles and responsibilities of a career practitioner
- Counselling for subject selection, pathways and transition
- The Australian Standards for Career Development Practitioners and Continuing Professional Development
- Work experience and structured workplace learning
- Designing career education programs
- VET in schools, Pathways planning, tertiary course advice
- Pathways planning and using self assessment and vocational tools
- Career practitioners’ yearly calendar
- VTAC counselling and Courselink
- Your Careers Tool Kit – using web 2 resources & programs
- Developing community partnerships
- current government initiatives on career education in schools
This professional learning activity is vital for those new to the area. Mentors and presenters are experienced, practising professional career development practitioners working in the role in educational settings. There will be a number of specialist guest speakers providing input into the program on topics such as legal and ethical requirements, counselling techniques and Information Management for career practitioners. If your organisation’s careers staff will change from this year to next, please make sure the new staff member receives this information.
In 2013, the new Career Practitioners Training Program will be offered as a two-day non residential. The ICDP will be hosted at CEAV Offices in Hawthorn.
