Career Development Workshop

Dates of workshop: Thursday 14 Dec and Friday 15 Dec, 2006 OR Wednesday 28 Mar and Thursday 29 Mar, 2007

The aims of this two-day workshop are to help participants to take stock of where they are in their career, to consider their aspirations for the future, and to create a career development plan. It is aimed at academic and research staff, and people with management responsibilities.

The workshop will be structured around four key questions:

  • Where have I been?
  • Where am I now?
  • Where do I want to get to?
  • How will I get there?

This workshop is based on a series of practical exercises, and it is important that participants are willing to engage in a process of self reflection together with sharing of their thoughts in small groups. There will be the option for each participant to have a short follow-up conversation with a careers adviser to review how they are translating their plans into action.

Places are limited to a maximum of twelve.

Course leaders: Bob Thomson, Management Development Adviser, CAP, and Anna Preston, Careers Service

Session times: Day one: 9.30 am till 4.30 pm - Day two: 9.30 am till 4.30 pm

Venue: Seminar Room, Ground Floor, University House
