She’s Still World Class but her workshop has been postponed

Leave a comment

I am so disappointed about this being postponed.

Since her workshop was announced I have been reading her stuff (see below) and have discovered Ronald Saltana and Tristram Hooley

I had visions of  her workshop kick starting a revolution in career development in WA.crying baby

THIS is what I had written to let you know about her….. I guess the revolution will continue to move at glacial speed!!

___________________________________

As the power of career guidance races at glacial speed into the consciousness of school leavers, the Career Development Association of Australia (CDAA) is working to put a spotlight on the value of career guidance by bringing Dr Deirdre Hughes to Australia.

She is one of the growing band of social justice warriors who is fighting to break down barriers to career opportunities.

They are shifting the focus FROM the individual who needs to improve their interview skills, be more resilient and entrepreneurial TO building collaborative transitional frameworks that support people to transition to roles where they can engage their full potential.

The issues she talks about are similar to ours. She was involved with developing a commitment to providing a career pathway for every young Londoner. That commitment is outlined in the London Ambitions Report which you can check out HERE.

I got in touch with her through LinkedIn and asked how we can lift the profile and resources of career development in Western Australia. She sent me a link to work she has just had published which Champions Careers in Derby in the UK.

Championing Careers

It provides a vision and strategy that includes mapping the local Derby careers ecosystem. It is a strategy that we could use as a template in WA.

A fantastic careers teacher may have changed my life. I've spent my career going from job to job. After washing cars and working in bars I went into marketing. I then became an English teacher. Teaching has been the foundation for a lot of my career. I went into TAFE where I designed participation programs, then into HR, then developed training programs for industry.  I taught e-commerce and developed systems to make it easier for organisations to work together. I kept going for scholarships and going back to uni along the way. At one time I became a world expert on collaboration frameworks, and discovered it was tricky having a conversation about THAT with anyone I knew!! I now focus on delivering information that helps careers teachers to be fantastic. You can tap into my expertise by subscribing to my newsletter.
