Certified Career Conversations Facilitator Programme
Career conversations has always seemed like something a "specialist" would do. Now I have some useful tools and techniques that mean I can do something that I think is important and worthwhile.

In today’s business world, organisations need to take a new approach to career management. It is no longer realistic for organisations to offer lifetime security to employees. Nor is it realistic to expect lifetime commitment from them. More than ever, the organisation-employee relationship is a partnership. Career management strategies need to reconcile the differing needs of organisations and employees. Managers and employees need to have meaningful career conversations. And organisations need to create a culture which values learning and professional development. The Certified Career Conversations Facilitator Programme will help you develop the internal capability to do that. It will provide you with the skills, confidence and resources to deliver the Career Conversations Workshops.
Creating a culture which values learning and professional development
The Certified Career Conversations Facilitator Programme is a 3-Module Train the Trainer Programme. It equips HR/LOD professionals with the confidence and resources to deliver Career Conversations Workshops.
The Certified Career Conversations Facilitator Programme will help you:
- Develop the skills and confidence you need to put in place career management strategies
- Deliver Career Conversations training to managers
- Empower employees to take ownership of their professional development
- Help employees prepare for career conversations with their manager and others
- Build scalable programmes linked to your business strategy or integrated with your own content
- Access a professional community and resources for ongoing support and professional development
The Certified Career Conversation Facilitator Programme is for HR/LOD professionals who have attended the Career Conversations Programmes and wish to build practical career conversation skills within an organisation.
The duration of the Programme is 3 days which we can deliver in one full week or in a series of modules. We can deliver all sessions in person or online via technology.
We recommend spreading out the modules to allow participants to become familiar with the materials. That way, participants can put their skills into practice and reflect on their learning before building their knowledge further.
Areas covered will include knowledge of career conversations, learning psychology and behavioural change. This will help participants get a clearer picture of the areas they need to focus on during the Programme.
The training will be highly practical and interactive. Each participant will receive a Certified Career Conversations Facilitator Kit. The Kit contains all the resources facilitators need to deliver the workshops. The materials will also be available on a Learning Portal. This will include extra resources and reference materials such as white papers, articles etc.
Each participant will receive mentoring throughout the programme. They can also make use of a free coaching call within the first twelve weeks after the final module. Email support will also be available on an ongoing basis to all trained facilitators.
