In view of the rapidly changing job market in Hong Kong, the demand for career and life development (CLD) services for non-engaged youth (NEY) is emerging. Continuous improvement in intervention strategies and case management are crucial to maintain professionalism and excellence during service delivery. This part-time advanced certificate programme is specially designed for local social workers who are working with NEY. It aims to provide professional and holistic training to equip students with the knowledge and skills required to provide appropriate support and guidance to NEY in their CLD journey.
In this programme, an Ecosystem-based Navigation-oriented CLD Competencies Framework will be stressed in order to understand NEY within different sociocultural contexts and assess their needs and challenges during their CLD journey. Holistic case management, useful intervention approaches and use of technology will also be covered to develop students’ competence in incorporating CLD lens into services for NEY.
