This webinar is a collaboration between Kilkenny Education Centre, Cork Education Support Centre, Waterford Education Support Centre, West Cork Education Support Centre and Wexford Education Support Centre.
This webinar is suitable for Post Primary teachers, Guidance Counsellors, Study Skills Co-Ordinators and parents/guardians. Rather than relying on the age-old question of ‘What do you want to be?’, challenge-based career guidance asks the question ‘What challenges in the world do you want to solve?’ and ‘What do you need to learn to do it?’. Given the looming CAO deadline, in this timely online workshop, Fidelma will show how using a set of career challenge cards and skill-based cards is an invaluable resource, and an exciting and practical approach which can tap into the student’s core motivation and values. Join the workshop and see for yourself as the challenge and skill cards help students realise exciting career areas that interest them, opening up new pathways they may not have considered.
