Autumn events at the International Centre for Guidance Studies (iCeGS)

Nicki and Siobhan at the seminar event 13012016

This year’s iCeGS annual lecture ‘Career guidance in communities – The collective turn’ will take place on Weds October 26 at 2.00 – 4.30 and will be delivered by Rie Thomsen.

The lecture is called Career guidance in communities – The collective turn

In this year’s annual lecture Rie Thomsen, Associate Professor at the University of Southern Denmark (COMAC) Career Research Cluster, will ask how career guidance interacts with the everyday lives of people and their communities. As resources for guidance in many countries are suffering from cut backs, discussions on how to invest resources become increasingly important. Engaging in existing communities and creating flexible forms of career guidance activities that allow for adaptation to meet the diverse needs of different communities might be a way forward.

This event will also include the launch of the book ‘CPD for the Career Development Professional’ by Dr. Siobhan Neary, Head of iCeGS and Claire Johnson, Professional Development Manager at the Career Development Institute.

iCeGS workshop: How to develop career guidance in communities?

Tuesday October 25th from 10.30 – 3.30

Lives are lived in communities, small or large, supportive or hindering, practical, personal and professional. It’s a fact! Communities are there and decisions regarding our lives are entangled in many communities for each and every one of us. In this workshop practitioners, professionals, researchers and policy developers of career guidance and counselling will set out to explore the reasons for leaving offices to go out to do career guidance in communities so extending modes of delivery of career services. Rie Thomsen will share insights from her practice based research on Career Guidance in communities with adults and young people. You will leave this workshop with your own ideas for career guidance in communities and insight into the ideas of the other participants.

There will be a small cost of £70 for this event which will include lunch and refreshments throughout the day.
