About Careers Guidance
Masters degrees in Careers Guidance equip postgraduates with the skills to work in the provision of support services aimed at helping individuals to make informed career decisions.
Related subjects include Career Management and Career Development. Entry requirements typically include an undergraduate degree in an appropriate subject such as Business Management, Social Science or Counselling.
Careers Guidance professionals work with a variety of individuals and groups, including young people, adults, parents, teachers, employers and training providers. Their main aim is to help clients navigate pathways such as employment, education and vocational training.
Courses in this field will train you in the counselling techniques necessary for one-to-one career guidance, working with groups and via online media. You’ll deal with many important frameworks, including the ethical consideration of your role as a mentor, as well as an examination of labour markets, current policy and professional practice.
In terms of your career, you might want to work specifically with disadvantaged people, such as individuals with disabilities, or vulnerable people such as refugees and asylum seekers. You could also branch into administration and public policy to promote equality and diversity within the workplace.
