AEGS - AGMS - Texting Module Guide

NCGE has been working closely with our IT provider to ensure that the Texting Facility within the AGMS is fully operational for all services. This Texting Facility allows AEGS staff to send texts (via the AGMS), with prior permission of the client already provided. Providing for a ‘cap’ of 500 texts per AEGS, funded for each of the ETB AEGS by NCGE, this extra 500 Texts per service is now available and supports the following:

( i)  Allows AEGS to contact those hard to reach clients who may not have suitable internet access, to provide information and offer continued and additional guidance supports where appropriate.

(ii) Provides a process whereby the client receiving guidance online can provide their noted consent to their data being entered onto the AGMS following the guidance session (in line with GDPR).

NCGE has developed a short guide to using the Text facility within the AGMS and this is available below.

Telephone and Remote Platform Approaches to Career Development

Adults lead busy lives.  Invariably, they may have many responsibilities including family, work (or seeking work/enterprise development) and education (or planning to return to education).  For the guidance counsellor, working on career development with such adults, there may be a combination of ‘one to one’ engagement, group work, telephone calls, e-mails, texting, Facetime or Skype and other remote platform approaches.  Technology can be transformative, improving the experience and outcomes, for both the client and the guidance counsellor. Improved access may support immediacy, anonymity (which many adults may favour) and also offer a supporting mechanism to ‘face to face’ guidance.  Furthermore, telephone work can be empowering to the client, who may experience a greater sense of control in choosing their own environment. In order to use technology well, it is important to review how existing skills can be transferred to other mediums, such as the telephone.  In the short film below, Liane Hambly, an independent consultant with over 25 years’ experience in the career development field, looks at some of the key components of integrating telephone work into guidance practice.
