  • To deconstruct and reframe the professional identities of careers guidance and careers practitioners in the context of UK service delivery policies.
  • To foster interdisciplinary and inter-sectoral dialogue by bringing key stakeholders together to debate issues of mutual interest.

The seminar series will:

  • Examine careers guidance workers' perceptions of their actual and ideal professional roles.
  • Identify features of a range of practices and how each is effective in particular settings.
  • Explore how best to develop integrated practice that enables access to opportunity in culturally diverse and disadvantaged settings.
  • Evaluate existing, emerging and potential uses of digital technologies to deliver enhanced careers-work practice.
  • Suggest how emerging career theory can most usefully be embedded in developing practice.
