Advanced Careers Counselling


The Advanced Careers Counselling  workshop is ideal for those wanting to develop or hone the more advanced careers counselling skills needed to work with the long term unemployed, disengaged youth, people facing retrenchment, redundancy and youth in transition. 

Participants undertake highly relevant professional reading and related activities in preparation for an intensive 2 day workshop.

The Australian Sandards for Career Development Practitioners identifies the need for professional practitioners to have all the components of the competency 6.3.3 Advanced communication skills which includes the Specialisation - counselling skills. As stated in the standards "Counselling is  fundamental to the work of many career development practitioners".

When counselling, practitioners should provide a process that is aligned with the needs of the individual. Supporting a client through the career guidance process is not simply providing employment or course information. It requires the examination of the clients life, learning and work in context of their lifelong career development.


As Australia has established standards and accreditation processes in the career development field, it is essential that Career Practitioners be given an opportunity to develop the knowledge and skills that are a prerequisite for providing effective and accountable career development services. Undertaking the 2 day workshop and short course - Advanced Careers Counselling Skills will greatly assist any practitioner in further developing this essential skill.


The following competencies are addressed in this short course:

  • Communicate effectively in counselling practice
  • Use specialist communication skills in counselling interviews
  • Apply appropriate career development theory
  • Conduct career development sessions
  • Assist individuals to make informed career choices
  • Communicate professionally to promote career development outcomes
  • Use resources and technology to support career development session
