Adviza’s AIM course receives top marks
4th Sep 2015
The first graduates from Adviza’s AIM course have had their work presented at external verification. The awarding organisation was very pleased with the standard of work and all of the assessment criteria was passed with no action points.
The AIM Certificate in Managing Careers Advice and Guidance in a Learning Environment was developed in response to a gap in training and support for careers co-ordinators and those responsible for careers education in schools and colleges. Whereas most courses focus on one-to-one advice and guidance or on the careers curriculum, the AIM course provides the skills and knowledge to develop, implement and review a careers education curriculum and to take on the relatively new duties relating to commissioning services.
Below are some of the comments received from course graduates:
"The unit on commissioning services has helped me to identify the skills that I need to constantly develop and work on in order to manage a successful careers guidance contract."
"I found the tutorials I attended very useful in a number of ways, for example it is good to exchange ideas and hear about the experience of other participants from other schools and work together on the tasks given throughout the day."
"It has encouraged me to look at evaluating more often and seeing it as a natural part of my role within the school as opposed to being something you do when you actually have the time to do it."
"Having now a greater understanding of career theories, and their benefits and limitations, it does allow me to look more closely at the provision currently in place and to assess its suitability."
"This unit has helped me to understand the different frameworks and external criteria that should be used to ensure that the career programme is meeting the needs of all of the students."
Our next AIM course will start in the Autumn term - click here for details.
