educators, advisers, programme-managers
& policy-makers

They relate to all aspects of learning for...

& personal-&-social development


  • what's new

Pressures on working life are intensifying & attitudes are changing.  There is an accelerating growth of formal & informal ways in which people find out what is going on & figure out what they can do about it.

If people are changing the ways they engage with work then careers workers need to reform the help they offer.  There are few twenty-first-century answers to twenty-second-century questions.

There's a lot to catch up on.  Key areas of careers-work thinking need updating.  The links to the thinking include the originals, so that you can track the background for reform.  The new thinking is re-aligned to an increasingly commercial world, driven by a disturbingly clever information technology. 

Other links feature a widening range of new & radical ideas for supporting the reform and expansion of careers work.  All accommodate new thinking for twenty-first century reform.
