The East Africa Career Development Association has been convened due to the growing interest by various Governments in the East African Community to introduce and provide career guidance within their respective countries. As the demand for career guidance begins to grow so will the need for competent Career Practitioners. The EACDA serves as the Professional body to foster excellence in career guidance delivery through establishing standards and ethics that all career practitioners should possess.
We aim to achieve this by: Assisting Governments in the East African Community (EAC) to develop career guidance policy. Working with Government to make the required systemic changes that will result in open access to career guidance. Introducing a competency framework for career practitioners in the region so that acceptable delivery standards are met. Advancing training and skills development for career practitioners across all sectors of the economy. Introducing research driven career guidance practices appropriate to the East African context.
