Canadian Standards for Career Development Practitioners: Focus on Implementation.
The Canadian Standards and Guidelines for Career Development Practitioners have become a means to unify the career development community; assess the professional competencies of career practitioners; market the knowledge and skills sets of practitioners; and raise the profile of career development. This paper provides background information on the development of standards and guidelines for practitioners. The three phases of development, from electing a National Steering Committee, to linking organizations that would ultimately adopt the standards, to the field testing of options for implementing the standards in different contexts are all explained. The scope of the standards and guidelines are described and a model is presented which encompasses the core competencies. Suggestions are presented on how interested parties can participate in the field testing. (JDM)
