Skills & competencies required by career practitioners to develop internet-based practice

The increased use of technology by young people is placing new demands on career practitioners. In parallel, the current policy context emphasises the need to exploit the potential of new technologies and integrate their use into all aspects of career guidance practice. Implicit is the assumption that its introduction will not only extend access to services by clients and customers by increasing the flexibility of delivery methods, but that it will also help reduce costs by lowering the demand for face-to-face support. A small-scale, mixed-methods research study explored the skills and competencies required by career practitioners to deliver internet-based career guidance to young people and, importantly, gave young people the opportunity to express their views about how they want information and communication technologies (ICT) to be used in the future to deliver guidance services. Fieldwork involved 46 young people and 17 practitioners, together with the managers of services, across six dispersed geographical locations in England. Data were gathered from October to November 2009, using investigative frameworks developed from, and grounded in, the research literature.
