Introducing Career Education and Development: A guide for personnel in educational institutions in both developed and developing countries
Introducing Career Education and Development focuses on taking a proactive approach to helping young people manage their own career development. It advocates implementing a program of activities in educational institutions to assist them to develop the understanding, attitudes, skills, and experiences to be able to make informed career decisions and take deliberate career-related actions throughout their lives.
This book highlights the importance of introducing an effective Career Education and Development (CED) program in educational institutions. It advocates for such a program not only in support of the growth and development of individuals, but also in support of workforce, social justice, economic, and national imperatives.
The educative approach to CED is a relatively new concept in many countries. Where such programs do exist, the people responsible experience difficulty in either justifying or maintaining them. This book is designed to assist all personnel working in schools, colleges, and/or universities to understand how to provide and sustain a quality CED program.
