Learning and decision making resources for career guidance
In order to develop consistency for those who are using the Leader CMS framework learning outcomes have been established. These provide the basis for good practice in the development of careers practitioners and can be equally applied to developing the skills and knowledge of practitioners relating to CMS.
The Learning Outcomes for career guidance practitioners are:
1. I know the CMS framework (integrating theory and research into practice) – the expectation is that the practitioner makes themselves familiar with the framework and identify the areas they wish to focus on within their practice. As well as understanding and knowing the framework, they should also ensure they are familiar with the theory and research that has contributed to the development of the framework and the evidence that supports its construction.

2. I can design career guidance activities and career learning programmes for improving CMS – the framework offers a basis from which programmes and learning activities can be developed. Practitioners can use the framework to assist them in creating innovative approaches to support their clients/students to develop their skills.

3. I can undertake career development activities for building users’ capability for career management – the framework can be used as a needs analysis to help identify areas for development for clients/students. Practitioners need to be able to assess how best they can use the CMS framework with the clients/students.
4. I can review and evaluate career learning programmes – reflecting on and learning from practice is key to all professional practice. Practitioners need to develop strategies that will help them to review the activities they have done so that they can continue to improve and enhance them.
