The course will be delivered via Zoom over three dates ( 15th of April, 19th of May and 15th of June) by Kathy Melling and Liz Mellor. Each session will start at 9.30am and run until 1.00pm, with 2 breaks in between.  All training sessions are recorded and made available to participants for up to 30 days (or longer under specific request), allowing learning flexibility, as we understand that technical problems and/or other commitments might get in the way!

This is a great CPD opportunity, offering you additional tools to ensure valuable time in education is used to best prepare (young people aspiring to enter the world of work) for adulthood with jobs and sustainable careers.

Sessions will be delivered using a range of techniques to ensure interaction and give the opportunity to network; you will learn about inspiring examples of best practice both, nationally and internationally and the tutors will facilitate discussions aimed to identify opportunities within your local community and regional context. Handouts will be provided and no homework will be required.

After completing the course, you will get a certificate of attendance from BASE which goes towards your CPD.

There are 16 spaces available.
