Welcome to the Career Education online course

This course has been developed by Daniela Bunea, teacher of English as a Foreign Language and class teacher in a secondary school for 26 years now, in close collaboration with the School Education Gateway.

The general aim of this Short Online Course is to provide a sound understanding of the role of building pupils’ career development awareness in schools.

  • By establishing a common understanding on what career education is, we will identify career success stories in a fast-paced and ever-changing world.
  • We will then explore career readiness and illustrate how interests, values and skills such as communication skills, language skills, digital skills, creativity, critical thinking and personal marketing can foster a resourceful mindset.
  • The course will also provide you with practical support in terms of designing an innovative plan to inform a future career path for your pupils , alongside with exploiting other effective data-gathering tools.

Each of the four modules consists of multimedia resources and discussions around these, practical tasks using a wide range of digital tools, forums for exchanging ideas, as well as a further- reading section with extra resources.

  • The language of communication is English.
  • You can follow the course at your own pace. The only deadline you need to pay attention to is for the final peer assessment assignment.
  • To get the most out of the course, you can join the course Facebook group or share your thoughts on Twitter using the hashtag #careereducationTA
