Postgraduate Certificate in Career and Talent Management

A Work Based Learning programme

The Postgraduate Certificate in Career & Talent Management is a work-based Learning Agreement award which rewards learning applied in the workplace with an academic award. Entry is normally for those with a first degree or professional qualification, but often this is waived where substantial and relevant work experience is there such as the Career Counselling Services (CSS) five day programme.

Programme Structure

If you have completed the CCS five day course, you will have the opportunity to enrol on the Postgraduate Certificate. The CCS Core Skills Course will give you the opportunity to gain entry by completing the CCS programme and passing the CCS licensing questionnaire test. The CCS Licensing Questionnaire is a fifteen question test on your knowledge and learning from the CCS Core Skills Course. Some questions are based on case studies from the course.

  • CCS Licensing Questionnaire - A fifteen question test on your knowledge and learning from the CCS Core Skills Course. Some questions are based on case studies from the course.
  • An assignment consisting of two questions, each requiring 1000-1250 words.

The Kingston University Postgraduate Certificate in Career and Talent Management consists of four learning goals of 15 credits, each learning goal has a work based career and talent management asssignment associated with it. You will need to complete three further assignments to complete the sixty credits required for the PG Certificate in Career and Talent Management. These assignments will be based on a Learning Contract which you agree with your Academic Supervisor:

  • Two case studies of practice (30 credits): At least one of these case studies should be a description of work with an individual client. The second case study can be either a second case study of work with an individual client, a case study of a group intervention (eg, a career workshop) or other similar career development activity related to career and talent management (eg, the development and introduction of self-help career materials combined with career counselling) for which the student has been responsible. The option of a group of students working in the same organisation presenting a group assignment would also be possible. Guidance would be given on the appropriate format of each case study which would be expected to be between 3000 and 4000 words long. Particular importance would be attached to students providing evidence of reflective practice and an awareness of an ethical dimension to their work.
  • Course assignment (15 credits): The intention of the final assignment is to provide the student with the opportunity to relate theoretical issues relating to counselling, career development or talent management to their professional practice. Possible activities might be a literature review on a particular topic relevant to their work (eg, the career development of women, professional practice issues, etc), a small scale evaluation of the effectiveness/impact of a career intervention, a reflective journal, etc. The option of a group of students working in the same organisation presenting a group assignment would also be possible. Guidance would be given on the appropriate format of the assignment which would be expected to be between 3000 and 4000 words long. On successful completion of the final assignment, students will be eligible for the PG Certificate in Career and Talent Management.
