Proposal for a Career Management Skills framework

Cover report intellectual output 2What should an individual know in order to successfully advance their career? Perhaps even more importantly, what is it possible to actually teach someone which will help them in their career. This publication will seek to answer these questions by presenting a new career management framework which career professionals and educators across Europe and beyond are welcome to use or to adapt for their own purposes.

The LEADER Framework for Careers sets out five main areas that all citizens should attend to as they develop their careers: personal effectiveness; managing relationships; finding and accessing work; managing life and career; and understanding the world. Under each of these five areas the framework details a series of career management skills. These career management skills provide tools for educators to focus their curriculum, for counsellors to shape their interactions with clients and for policy makers in considering what programmes to fund or promote.
