Our team of careers experts
We have a team over 60 specialist career advisers who are Level 6 IAG qualified or training towards it. As our first point of contact, they develop relationships with young people and adults, build rapport and provide support when needed at all stages of the careers journey. This enables them to provide a demonstrable impact on people’s lives.
Our career advisers are accredited professionals, supported with CPD and annually appraised and assessed by experienced C+K managers. This means that they are not just able to provide information and advice, but they are able to provide personalised guidance that makes a significant difference to people’s lives.
C+K careers advisers in schools and colleges
The support of a C+K career adviser will not just benefit pupils, it will add value to the whole school. Every adviser is able to establish relationships in school, adapt their delivery to the institution and its student’s specific needs and requirements. They link with Careers Leaders and the Senior Management Team to provide insight and understanding to leadership issues (including Ofsted and Gatsby Benchmarks) and provide wider support around employability and personal life skill development.
In addition, they are a fantastic resource for accessing local employers, brokering relationships with third party organisations and their friendly, approachable nature means they are an extra resource for a vulnerable young person to open up to.
C+K careers advisers working with NEET young people
Our Participation Advisers offer a targeted careers information, advice and guidance service for young people who are not in employment, education or training (NEET). They understand the issues and barriers facing young people who may be finding it difficult to move into sustainable learning or employment and are able to build strong levels of trust and links to support them to progress. They also have established networks with services and stakeholders to establish a well rounded vision of support and opportunities available to young people in their areas.
C+K careers advisers working with adults
Our C+K careers advisers have a wealth of experience in working with adults, the support they are able to offer helps to build confidence and make a difference to their lives. Used to creating links and networking with different services, they are able to not only offer IAG but also refer on to suitable courses and employment programmes where needed.
