A Career Counsellor Internship Program
McIlveen, Peter
Australian Journal of Career Development, v13 n2 p9-16 Win 2004
The issue of training career counsellors in Australia requires considerable review in respect to theory and practice. This paper describes an internship model of training career counsellors. The model is derived from a current program of workplace training for candidates doing their masters in psychology. The program takes a competency-based format and engages interns in the work of career counselling in the higher education sector. The value of competency-based learning and the integration of training into extant professional degrees are highlighted as promising avenues for the development of career counsellors.
