iCeGS is developing a new qualification for career development practitioners and we need your help

The International Centre for Guidance Studies has decided to develop a new post-graduate study programme leading to the MA in Careers Education and Coaching. The programme will also incorporate the Qualification in Career Development (QCD). The QCD is the new terminology used by the Career Development Institute to describe post-graduate professional qualifications at level 7  in England from 2017.

This programme will be exciting, innovative and provide students with a marvellous opportunity to work alongside staff and associates at the Centre to develop their knowledge and understanding of our sector and to hone their research skills. We hope to have the first group of students start the programme in January 2017.

However for this to happen, we need your help to shape the programme. We would like you to participate in a short survey. The results of this will feed into the programme design.  Here is a link to the survey:

Thanks for your help

Kind regards
