Introduction to Guidance Interviewing


This two-day practical introduction to guidance interviewing is for advisers with little or no experience, or for those who are new to HE.

It is appropriate to both short and longer interventions. The programme contains a range of learning methods, including presentation, discussion, case studies and interviews with students. We only accept a maximum of six participants on to this course in order to create a supportive, secure and focused environment for learning.

The course is for careers advisers who have little or no experience of guidance interviewing, or those who are new to HE. It is intended as a starter course and will present an HE perspective on guidance work, including familiar models of practice, so it is equally useful to those with or without a QCG.

By the end of the course, participants should be able to:

  • describe the skills that underpin our guidance practice
  • apply these skills to short and long interventions
  • analyse the role of structure in guidance interventions
  • identify theories underpinning career choice
  • feel more confident about their guidance skills and appreciate the importance of continuing development.

Here's what some previous participants had to say:

"Every item was carefully considered and no time was wasted. The planning and delivery was blended to perfection. Every section was relevant, thought provoking and inclusive of all members in the room."

"The structure of the learning was useful as it allowed us to learn new information and then test our knowledge in a safe space."

The cost for this two-day residential course includes the training sessions, refreshments, meals and en-suite accommodation for one night.
