There is a wider public benefit to be served in overcoming the lack of knowledge and skills and other disadvantage experienced by certain groups of people in the community seeking access to career and employment opportunities. CEAV Career Counselling Australia values career development as a means to promote social inclusion, economic benefit and sustainable human workforce development, so that all people may lead engaging and productive lives.
Some of the clients that use CEAV Career Counselling Australia services are people experiencing multiple complex barriers to employment. Career barriers for our clients are sometimes intertwined with mental health and family concerns, these issues need to be addressed as part of the counselling process in order for individuals to achieve a successful outcome in their counselling process. Many of the clients seeking our services will require the skilled practitioner to manage successful referrals to our partner organisations who can provide support services to meet additional needs and help clients navigate and manage the challenges they are facing.
Consider this example; a client with a visual disability who is struggling to connect with employment maybe referred to an expert in adaptive technology as part of their Career Action Plan. In this way we provide guidance support that includes targeted support for specific needs. Individuals who need psychological counselling to support their Career Planning maybe referred to services as part of their overall Career Action Plan.
CEAV Career Counselling Australia acknowledges the importance of partners in the guidance process and we have strong partnerships to support the people we advocate for, to ensure they achieve the outcomes they are seeking.
