Dr Phil McCash was asked to speak at the CDI Student Conference as an expert in his field

Dr Phil McCash, Course Director, Career Education, Information and Guidance in Higher Education, was invited to speak at the Career Development Institute Student Conference as an expert in the field of Career Development Work.

  • How do you do career development work?
  • How do get started with clients?
  • How do you progress the work?

These are some of the topics he tackled at the talk. He introduced the concept of the cultural learning alliance drawing from the cultural learning theory of career development. Phil also discussed a series of practical case studies.

Due to Covid-19, the conference was moved online and is still available to watch here:
