Diploma in Careers Information and Advice Level 4
Duration: 12 months
The OCR Level 4 Diploma in Careers Information and Advice is the standard qualification for the National Careers Service, a strong starting point for training providers looking towards both their Matrix and Ofsted reviews and provides skills and credibility within both the welfare to work and employability sectors. It is also popular within the careers teams of further education colleges and is present in schools around the country.
This qualification is the base on which career guidance careers are built. This programme will provide you with plenty of opportunities to develop yourself and knowledge of the subject which is directly applicable to your place of work.
It also provides a stepping-stone for those keen to progress to the level 6 diploma or a Master’s degree in career guidance-related disciplines.
The focus is on getting the right programme for you or your team, with one live, interactive, teaching seminar via Zoom or Microsoft Teams for each module, supported by coaching from experts and online resources and self study before and after each seminar.
This qualification aims to:
- provide professional development opportunities for those currently working in career guidance, in para-professional roles
- prepare you for employment in a career guidance role
- improve your underpinning knowledge, understanding and skills for your career guidance role
- improve your performance at work
The qualification has five mandatory units which cover preparation for working in the careers guidance sector, awareness of career choice theories, and meeting the needs of clients. These contribute 30 of the 45 credits required. The remaining 15 credits are covered by a carefully curated selection from the list of optional units. These recommended units selected by JGA will support you to provide efficient, effective advice and guidance services to your clients.
