About This Course

Module One supports the careers leaders to prepare their school for change by establishing urgency, building a coalition team of invested internal stakeholders and creating a vision for a whole-school approach to high-quality careers guidance.

The module is structured in several sections with key outcomes after each one, as shown below:

  • Units 1, 2, 3 and 4: You’ll explore key themes around Leadership and Change Management in the context of being a Careers Leader.
  • Units 5 and 6: You’ll begin to consider why a Careers strategy is so important and how you can begin to communicate this, and how you can begin to build a ‘Careers Team’
  • Unit 7: You’ll join the rest of your local cohort in-person to collaborate and take the first steps towards producing your school’s Careers strategy.
  • Units 8-10: You’ll prepare to present your Careers Strategy presentation to internal stakeholders e.g. Senior Leadership Team, Governors, Careers Team, and begin logging your reflections in a Development Log.
