Career Practitioners around the world constantly seek new frontiers of learning and practice so that we are useful and relevant to our clients’ career needs. Our work, identity and growth are guided by professional standards, competencies and credentialing policies either locally or internationally. In 2018, Singapore had launched its own career practitioner competency and credentialing framework – dubbed the Workforce Singapore Career Development Framework (or WSG CDF). Since launch, it has trained and supported local career practitioners in the education, union, public employment and career services sector. In this webinar, we will shed insights and learnings on what might be the first local, postgraduate qualitative study on career practitioner skills policy, its impact and support for pre-existing and new career practitioners at the CDF’s introduction. Factors covered in this study includes skills acquisition, skills utilisation, skills measurement at the workplace, continuous professional development and professional recognition with international models.
