Careers and Experiencing Work Short Course

What is it?

The Careers & Experiencing Work Short Course has been produced to support the delivery of Careers and work-related education, and to help with planning and undertaking work experience/placements. It can support your centre in meeting its duty ‘to secure independent and impartial careers guidance for young people’ (Education Act 2011) by securing access to independent careers guidance for pupils aged 13-16 and providing information on options for Post-16 education, training and Apprenticeships.

The Careers & Experiencing Work Short Course comprises seven modules:

  • Self-Development
  • Career Exploration
  • Career Management
  • Considering Higher Education
  • Considering Apprenticeships
  • Preparing for the Workplace
  • Being at Work

The flexibility of ASDAN’s Short Courses means they can be carried out in a variety of settings, over a time period to suit the individual or co-ordinating centre. Challenge descriptions can be interpreted and adapted according to the situation.

Young people of all abilities, mainly aged between 13 and 19.

Because Short Courses are multi-level, the focus is on completing challenges and skills development according to individual ability, rather than attainment at a specific level.
