Handbook of career development : international perspectives by Gideon Arulmani( )

12 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is focused on work, occupation and career development: themes that are fundamental to a wide range of human activities and relevant across all cultures. Yet theorizing and model building about this most ubiquitous of human activities from international perspectives have not been vigorous. An examination of the literature pertaining to career development, counseling and guidance that has developed over the last fifty years reveals theorizing and model building have been largely dominated by Western epistemologies, some of the largest workforces in the world are in the developing world. Career guidance is rapidly emerging as a strongly felt need in these contexts. If more relevant models are to be developed, frameworks from other cultures and economies must be recognized as providing constructs that would offer a deeper understanding of career development. This does not mean that existing ideas are to be discarded. Instead, an integrative approach that blends universal principles with particular needs could offer a framework for theorizing, research and practice that has wider relevance. The central objective of this handbook is to draw the wisdom and experiences of different cultures together to consider both universal and specific principles for career guidance and counseling that are socially and economically relevant to contemporary challenges and issues. This book is focused on extending existing concepts to broader contexts as well as introducing new concepts relevant to the discipline of career guidance and counseling

Career guidance and public policy : bridging the gap by Richard N Sweet( Book )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

OECD countries are attaching rising importance to lifelong learning and active employment policies as tools of economic growth and social equity. Effective information and guidance systems are essential to support the implementation of these policies, and all citizens need to develop the skills to self-manage their careers. Yet there are large gaps between these policy goals and the capacity of national career guidance systems. Access to services is limited, particularly for adults. Too often services fail to develop people's career management skills, but focus upon immediate decisions. Training and qualification systems for those who provide services are often inadequate or inappropriate. Based upon a review conducted in 14 OECD countries (including Australia), the publication explores how the gap between career guidance services and public policy might be narrowed. It advocates improved national co-ordination arrangements and greater attention to research and data collection to inform policy makers. It also promotes the development of improved and more specialised training programmes for practitioners and the creation of more specialised career guidance organisations for the delivery of services.

"This book analyses contrasting approaches to the delivery of guidance services in the UK, Germany, Netherlands, Italy and France, focusing on the effects of marketisation and the impact of European Union policies." "The book compares services delivered through quasi-markets with other regimes, addressing key questions such as - what effect do the new performance indicators have on who gets what? What is happening to quality, equity and professionalism? What adult guidance service arrangements are the most effective to meet the needs of a learning society?" "This book will be welcomed by academics and public policy analysts, and all those interested in education, training and the labour market in the European Union, especially guidance policy makers and practitioners."--BOOK JACKET
