Training and development

Developing the workforce contributes to supporting staff and organisations to achieve their goals

Supporting the workforce to deliver their current role and prepare for the next is a key element of employability. UKCES Commission’s Employer Perspectives Survey 2012 identified that the majority of employers provide some form of development for their staff.  Workforce development provides not only opportunities for staff to enhance their personal performance but also to engage in lifelong learning and manage their careers effectively.

We are committed to providing high quality opportunities to enhance professional practice, we offer a suite of bespoke training programmes, recent examples include:

  • Advanced interviews skills, Theory and Reflective practice programmes for Level 6 and Social Media training for National Careers Service providers
  • In-service training for school based career educators
  • Strategic organisational development for university careers services in China and Malaysia
  • Staff development in the United Arab Emirates and Sri Lanka.
