Webinar: Building Brighter Futures - A Practical Toolkit

This interactive and practical presentation by Dr Deirdre Hughes OBE will provide a range of effective approaches to career development and wellbeing support.

This webinar is particularly targeted at practitioners working with adults. It provides an opportunity for a “review and refresh” for experienced practitioners, and practical tools based on solid career development theory, for newer practitioners.  

The presentation and toolkit will help you to:

  • Understand the changing context of career development and wellbeing in society.
  • Know how best to help support adults experiencing different types of transitions in their life.
  • Be aware of techniques that can be applied in practice to improve career development and wellbeing outcomes for adults.
  • Understand how to look after your own emotional care and competence in responding to and dealing with diverse and complex adult needs.
  • Be empowered to understand and maintain boundaries supporting the learning of others.
  • Identify further evidence to support your everyday practice to enable you to learn more.
