A half-day professional learning for career practitioners and education staff.

The educative approach to Career Education and Development (CED) is a relatively new concept in many countries. Where such programs do exist, the people responsible, experience difficulty in either justifying or maintaining them.

Col McCowan OAM – is a registered psychologist, counsellor & educator who worked in the Education Sector at primary, secondary and tertiary levels in roles including; teacher, guidance counsellor, resource developer, training officer, researcher, principal policy officer, national working party leader, lecturer, and manager of careers & employment. He is an International Fellow of the National Institute of Career Education and Counselling (UK) and has led many career-related consultancies for agencies including, UNESCO & ADB in the countries, Oman, Bhutan, India, Thailand, Vietnam and Mongolia. In 2007, he was awarded the Order of Australia Medal for his contribution to careers.

Col will share his findings as outlined in his newly published book. This book is designed to assist all personnel working in schools, colleges, and/or universities to understand how to provide and sustain a quality CED program.

Participants will each receive a copy of the book Introducing Career Education and Development: A Guide for Personnel in Educational Institutions in Both Developed and Developing Countries by Colin McCowan OAM, Malcolm McKenzie and Mansi Shah.
