    Career Education

    The Diploma in Career Education is designed to provide training and development for people involved in any capacity with the teaching or provision of career education within an education setting. Career Education involves preparing individuals in the art of becoming effective career educators and / or advisers.

    The course aims to develop a clear understanding of exactly what should be provided to the recipients of Career Education.

    The design and delivery of the Career Education course is a joint venture between practitioners of Career Education and Guidance (CEG) and the University. This strong link with practice helps to ensure that the Diploma remains current, relevant and responsive to local needs. The course has a long history of success in this area of learning; operating since 1995, it currently has approximately 250 students from around the country undertaking its training.
