CDA of PEI Certification Working Group
has met a few times and we are at the point of creating a draft model for a Career Development Practitioner Certification in PEI.
This group examined several models (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Ontario) and will take the national model for CDPs into consideration in our draft.
Once a draft is created members will be invited to give feedback.
During our member visits there were a few clear messages that came through from many of you. One of these themes was "how to change the employer / employee mindset". Carron found this helpful article that may help open up the discussion with your clients or employer contacts.
