Introduction for the 7Cs website

Welcome to the webpages for #Digitisemycareer. The resources which can be found here will help teachers and advisers to develop young people’s digital career literacy. The concept of digital career literacy was introduced by Tristram Hooley, Professor of Career Education at the University of Derby, in an article for the NICEC journal in 2012. He suggested that young people need to develop seven competencies (the 7Cs) which will allow them to exploit the internet for career development. The resources which we have produced will improve young people’s ability to use the online environment, to research, to make contacts and to build a positive professional reputation. 

We hope that you enjoy using these resources. They are meant as a starting point and you will want to adapt them to your own context. In the spirit of a community of practice, we hope that you will want to join in a dialogue about the resources. If you find new ways of supporting the development of the 7Cs and wish to share these ideas with others please contact Nicki Moore at n.moore@derby.ac.uk
