Seminar:  What do we think practitioners need to know about the career guidance needs of asylum seekers, refugees and migrant populations?

Anne Chant and Hazel Reid (Canterbury Christ Church University)

The seminar draws on our involvement in two Erasmus + projects with a number of European partner countries. One is collecting examples of best practices for assessing and documenting young refugees’ skills and competences (to include both informal and formal learning), and how the knowledge can be used in career guidance and counselling. The other is on developing curriculum material for the training and CPD of career guidance professionals who are working with migrant and refugee populations of all ages. The session will provide a brief overview of the projects, and work achieved thus far, and then focus on what we think practitioners need to know to work effectively in this area. We will outline the findings of the literature review for the UK, and then move on to the results of the needs analysis, which involved expert career guidance practitioners, students, lecturers in HE, counsellors working with migrant and refugee clients and, importantly, former refugees. The title of the seminar refers to what we think practitioners need to know … we hope to engage the audience in a discussion to widen our understanding and stimulate debate around this vital development for career guidance and counselling practice.
