A comprehensive report on the provision of training in Counselling and Psychotherapy (Hulme and Rutton, 2013) proposed that one of the main areas for future research is investigation in to what happens to counselling students following qualification. This study, carried out in 2016, investigated the career trajectories of Abertay counselling students and looked to evaluate their career pathway once qualified. Additionally, the study looked to explore the links between course content and employability with a view to ensuring that the programme is relevant and continues to meet industry needs. Some key findings will be presented within this poster.
