  • In Canada, if we’re going to talk about competency-based training, then we need to first talk a little bit about the Canadian Standards and Guidelines for Career Development Practitioners.How many are already familiar with the S & Gs?Initiated in 1996 and the initial development spanned about 7 years – because of the commitment to make it a participatory process involving practitioners working in diverse settings, with diverse backgrounds and with diverse views. This was a bold step at the time – no other country had embarked on such an initiative. As you can imagine, suspicion was rampant that standards might somehow serve to exclude some practitioners. So, the first years were focused simply on answering the question: “Do we actually want to even talk about articulating competency standards for practice?” In the end, 93% said yes.After that, over 70 regional consultations were held – with the goal of ensuring that what was created would be built by practitioners from the ground up.

  • You have a handout on this – but in a nutshell our S & Gs are broken into two main categories:Core Competencies: the knowledge, skills and attitudes ALL practitioners need in order to deliver effective and ethical service regardless of where they practice in Canada, the specific services they provide or who they serve.In Canada, we include in this category professional behaviour, interpersonal competencies, career development knowledge and basic needs assessment and referral.

    4. 4. 4 national calls for input: What is missing/needs revision in the current S & Gs?<br />Top two recommendations:<br />Diversity: need for a more robust emphasis on competencies related to working with diverse populations<br />Technology: need to add competencies required to incorporate technologies into service delivery<br />Expert Input<br />Literature review<br />Draft revisions <br />4<br />So far…<br />

    10. 10. C2 Interpersonal Competence<br />C2.1 Respect Diversity<br />Current competency:<br />C2.1.1 recognize diversity<br />Suggested revision:<br />C2.1.1    recognize, understand, and support diversity.<br />Rationale: <br />Since 2004, there has been a wealth of information published to support practitioners to work effectively with clients from diverse backgrounds. Clients from diverse backgrounds are a rapidly growing part of the Canadian population and an increasing proportion of clients seeking career and employment services. All career development practitioners need to move beyond “recognizing” diversity to expanding their knowledge through “understanding” the multiple dimensions of diversity and “supporting” diversity in their practice of career development. <br />10<br />PART A: DIVERSITY<br />
    11. 11. C2 Interpersonal Competence<br />C2.1 Respect Diversity<br />Current Competency:<br />C2.1.2    respect diversity <br />Suggested revision:<br />C.2.1.2  Show respect for diversity <br />Rationale: <br />This is a more active practitioner requirement and implies an attitude and a demonstrated competency rather than simply an attitude.<br />11<br />PART A: TECHNOLOGY<br />
    12. 12. What is missing?<br />Why is it important for ALL career development practitioners?<br />Draw on your own expertise and experience with clients<br />Remember – we are talking about CORE competencies<br />12<br />PART B: HEART OF THE CONSULTATION<br />
