Training Certification

The Institute

Careerlinked Education Council originated holistic career development and created an innovative methodology that leads to unparalleled results. The Council recognises that authentic and impartial guidance can radically transform the lives of individuals and their communities and provides transformative education as its prime focus. The Council offers specialised training & certification to Career Professionals and those involved in the career development of students and adults. The Council is set up with strategic aims:

• To formulate and implement policies governing the provision of career education and guidance

• To develop innovative, appropriate and effective methods and materials for career development that enable informed educational, training and occupational choices.

• To provide an interface and vital networking channel with greater collaboration, cooperation and cohesion for a diverse and fragmented community of career guidance professionals.

• To devise and conduct relevant research and to provide a forum for disseminating effectively its findings and coordinating communication with other bodies engaged in similar activities.

• To provide training and continuing education programs for Career Professionals who help people make career decisions with up to date knowledge of career pathways and resultant decision making.

Career Planning Methodology

1. Self-engaging – involving students to design their career;

2. impartial – not being judgmental or deciding for others but impartially helping students in their decision-making process;

3. Authentic – career education tools and information from original sources;

4. Measurable – career development is measured, compared and analysed;

5. Transparent – all the stakeholders i.e. student, parent, teacher and advisor can share the student’s Career Dashboard in real-time.

What is Career Management

Career Management is defined as the lifelong process of managing learning, work and transitions to move toward your preferred future.

Lifelong – career management is not summed up in a single decision. A simplistic view of career management would have a young person decide what to “be” and what education to pursue to achieve that – end of the story.

The real story, however, generally involves multiple chapters, with distinct goals, tasks, outcomes and transitions across the lifespan. In early childhood, career management is largely about exploration, developing a sense of self in the future and expanding horizons for what that future self could encompass. Later in adolescence, career management is about exposure, experience, reflection and the development of personal and employability skills. Throughout adulthood, those skills are refined, expanded and deployed to navigate an ever-changing labour market. The Blueprint for Life/Work Designs articulates the life/work competencies.

Managing – career development will happen whether it is managed or not. The question is the extent to which you want to influence your career direction versus leaving it to chance. Current levels of youth unemployment and underemployment, job dissatisfaction and mental health claims in the workplace would suggest that leaving it to chance, more often than not, does not pan out.

Learning, work and transitions – career management is the mechanism by which learning (formal and informal), work (paid and unpaid) and the transitions between are navigated.

Preferred future – career management is about intentionality. Done well, it ensures that the decisions we make about learning and work are grounded in knowledge of self (personal interests, attributes, values and skills), and knowledge of educational/labour market realities (conditions, finances, prospects, entry requirements, progression and pathways). Done well, it ensures you are prepared for the realities of your choices, have the skills and supports to manage and, importantly, are clear about why the choice is right for you, fuelling your motivation, focus and success. Career management also recognises that both we and our labour market change over time. What we want and what is possible are not static. Whether we are employed with one company long term, pursue entrepreneurial ventures or piece together our living through multiple contracts, project-based and portfolio work, we will need to adjust and adapt, re-conceive and re-create our careers. This demands vigilance and career management and employability skills.
