CAREERS COUNSELLING BPS202

Career Counselling is a valuable addition to your teaching, counselling, management, life-coaching, or community services qualification. It can also improve parents' ability to help their children choose suitable career paths, or student's ability to plan their own career or career change. 
Starting or changing a career can be quite a challenge. Without help, a person can easily become discouraged or overwhelmed. If you want to help others (or yourself) make sound career decisions and set realistic career goals, this course will set you on that path.

Effective counselling requires a certain predictive ability that is based on the situation as it really is, which is often not the situation as the client perceives it, or as the client or counsellor would like it to be. One aspect of informed prediction will be, of course, a sound knowledge of the current job market and opportunities, which is an essential part of the Careers Counsellor’s professional knowledge. Another aspect of informed prediction will be a realistic assessment of the client’s current and likely future state, which includes attitude, knowledge, skills, experience, interpersonal skills etc.

INSTRUCTIONAL SKILLS BWR009

Learn to prepare for and perform basic instructional skills, prepare participation plans, and conduct and evaluate training sessions - relevant to any type of workplace.

This is a little different to other Workplace Trainer courses in that it focuses on "experiential learning". Many of the other courses in this subject area tend to focus on "Competency Based Training"; a way of teaching that focuses heavily on "assessment". Experiential learning in contrast, focuses more on the actual "learning" and less on the assessment.

This course incorporates what is found in a typical "Train the Trainer Course"... and much more!
