In order to showcase how our careers activities aim to meet various outcomes for career learning, we have used the Career Development Institute (CDI) Framework for careers, employability and enterprise education (Jan, 2020) to map our activities.

Meeting the career and learning needs of your students

We believe this makes it easier for you as the school’s Careers Leader to plan how our activities complement your wider careers programme in a way which is balanced, progressive and tailored to the needs of your students. The CDI Framework outlines learning outcome statements across 17 important areas of careers, employability and enterprise education grouped under three main headings:

Developing yourself through careers, employability and enterprise education

Self-awareness, self-determination and self-improvement underpin aspiration, ambition and achievement in careers, learning and the world of work

Learning about careers and the world of work

Exploring, investigating and understanding the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences that careers and the world of work have to offer is a prerequisite for successful planning and development.

Developing your career management, employability and enterprise skills

Developing a range of career management, employability and enterprise skills is the key to meeting challenges, making progress and managing change.

We have grouped our activities under each of these headings to show which area of career learning is being targeted by each.
