Successful Career Change
"Excellent Quality. Thought provoking and supportively challenging."
Department of Health
Career change is an inevitable result of the dynamic nature of modern work. For some, change can be foreseen well in advance, but for others, it can be unexpected.
For organisations who wish to create the right environment of support for its employees, especially in difficult times where a high number of career transitions will be inevitable within a department, it is vital that ensure that staff are equipped with the necessary tools and skills needed to face a career transition or progression. This culture of support will help ensure that morale is kept up among team members and that the organisation will not suffer from a lack of employee motivation.
This course is suitable for all aspects of career progression; from those facing imminent career changes to those for whom career change still seems some way. It sensibly and constructively prepares participants for a successful future by equipping them with the necessary career transition skills, knowledge, networks and encouragement to allow participants to take a proactive stance in their present and future career.
