Would you like to help people start or change their career?

Careers Counselling considers how you support clients, who are looking to find a job, plan their future or change their career.

Not only does it contain starting a new job, it also includes the training and study the client will need to take on to get to their desired career position.

The Careers Counselling course is a valuable addition to teaching, counselling, management, life-coaching or community services qualifications you may have.
