It was great to see this recent paper on professionalism in the Careers Sector:
Hooley, T., Johnson, C. and Neary, S. (2016). Professionalism in Careers. Careers England and the Career Development Institute.
I hope it goes some way to answering the questions I’m often asked about why qualifications and training are important for careers advisers. I’m trying to do my bit by appearing on the CDI’s register and using the initials and logo after my name, and I’d encourage other careers advisers to do the same!
