About the courseThe aim of the course is to give you the practical skills, theoretical knowledge and professional values that help to enable you to meet the needs of clients in a wide range of work settings. Upon successful completion of the course you will gain an understanding of how to deliver careers support to diverse individuals and groups and manage career development activities, as well as how to manage your own career development, whether as an employee or as a self-employed person, researcher or practitioner within a changing UK and international landscape. The course provides you with an opportunity to study and enhance your knowledge and skills in career development and guidance to inform professional practice within business and organisational settings. Working in public, private, voluntary and community settings, career guidance practitioners assist a range of adults and young people to make decisions about their education, training, jobs and careers. The theory and practice of career guidance in a contemporary context is central to our curriculum; its purpose, aims, benefits to society and people, and its varied delivery methods. We will consider the importance of equality, diversity and social justice to the delivery of career guidance, using case studies drawn from a wide variety of organisational contexts to reflect real-life challenges, such as those faced by university careers services in developing employability provision. You will receive training in a variety of interview models, covering the specialist skills needed for your work with clients, including networking, group work, presentation theories and techniques. We will also teach you how to evaluate career-related and labour market information.

AboutCoventry University is a public research university in Coventry, England. The origins of Coventry University can be traced back to the founding of the Coventry School of Design in 1843. It was known as Lanchester Polytechnic from 1970 until 1987, and then as Coventry Polytechnic until the Further and Higher Education Act 1992 afforded its university status that year and the name was changed to Coventry University.
The main campus of Coventry University is based in the centre of England, in the city of Coventry with Coventry University London just an hour away by train. As a top five UK student city (QS Best Student Cities Index 2019) Coventry offers students the benefits of both a great city experience and a campus with a thriving community.

On campus, TheHub is the centre of student life: it is the place to gather, grab a coffee with friends, have a meal, see a band in the SU, or just hang out. In short – it is TheHub of campus life. But there is also the University’s Sports Centre just across from TheHub, and the Westwood Heath Sports facilities with floodlit AstroTurf and grass pitches for football, hockey, rugby and cricket.
