The award is a legacy and tribute to the work of Dr Bill Law, Founding Fellow of NICEC, who died in April 2017. His work was recognised internationally and was significant in its impact on the way that career development is conceptualized and practised. The award will celebrate emerging innovation within the career development sector and importantly, the relationship between research, theory and practice.
This is an award for a student who is on or has recently completed (within the last 12 months) any relevant programme such as anyone studying for a level 6 level in career development (including career leaders), PGDip/Masters/SCQF 11 and Doctoral students or a CIPD programme.
