Summary

This course is designed to equip you with the skills, qualities and knowledge required of a professional practitioner working in the career development and employability sector, enabling you to meet the needs of clients in a variety of settings.

The curriculum offers flexibility – you have the choice of studying full-time or by blended learning, and there are module options to help you develop specialisms. This course is ideal if you’re looking to find employment in the sector, or are already employed in a career development or related role and seek Continuing Professional Development opportunities (CPD).

Rather than commit to the full MA, you can choose to study a Postgraduate Certificate (PG Cert) in Career Development. Those studying on the full-time MA will have the option of completing the Qualification in Career Development (QCD) award accredited by the Career Development Institute (CDI) professional body. The CDI has commended the course’s excellent teaching team and blended learning innovations, recognising them with the 2015 CDI Career Development Award for Best Practice in the Use of Technology in Career Development.

For the MA, you will study for 18 months, full-time (initially attending University one day a week, plus a minimum of one day a week for online or practice activities). For the PG Cert, you will study for six months via distance learning (plus attendance at six workshop days scheduled throughout the course).
