Diversity in Career Counselling Book Published

The Diversity in Career Counselling book has now been published! The book was launched at a conference in Prague, Czech Republic in June 2017. Karen Clark, Chief Executive, was one of the guest speakers at the conference which was a fantastic opportunity to promote the work of Justice Prince to a wide audience of people from across Europe. In the afternoon Karen and colleague Julie Cruddas, Development Manager, facilitated an interactive workshop sharing learning and practise from our experience of supporting people living in disadvantaged communities and excluded people.

Justice Prince to share practise on community based career guidance at a European Conference to take place in Prague in June 2017

Following the third partner meeting which took place in Buxton and Derby in October hosted by partners fromInternational Centre for Guidance studies (iCeGs,) Derby University, Justice Prince hosted the final partner meeting in February.

Partners met with young people participating in the Working Roots programme and reps from partner organisations involved in delivery of the programme. They also enjoyed visits to some of our fantastic north east landmarks and beautiful coast. The project will culminate in launch of our publication at a European conference in Prague in June 2017.

Karen Clark and Julie Cruddas have accepted an invitation to join the iCeGs Associate Network and look forward to developing closer working relationships with the wide range of partners involved.

The Diversity in Career Guidance publication has now been produced and will be officially launched at a European conference to be held in June 2017 in Prague. We will form part of a panel and facilitate workshops sharing our unique approach to career guidance with practitioners across Europe.

Three articles from this publication can be viewed in PDF format from these links:
