This course will build your competencies (skills, knowledge and attitudes) in career development and counselling and the contribution it makes to children, young people, and adults. The course builds on competencies and theories developed covered in other graduate courses, e.g. Principles of Assessment, Individual Testing, but especially, Work and Life Planning Counselling. It differs from the Work and Life Planning Counselling course in that the emphasis in this course will be on the practice and experience of career counselling.
