Embedded careers education

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Otherpeer-review


Transitions to life post-school are changing as a result of wide-ranging factors such as technological development, credential inflation, a more fluid labour market, the proliferation of different types of families, a greater focus on health and wellbeing and wider sociological trends such as the elongation of young peoples’ journeys to “adulthood”. Conventional markers of transition are themselves shifting, such as getting full-time employment, owning/renting a home and notions of “career”. Including and beyond career education, this policy presents a more holistic approach that responds to the changing nature of 21st-century transitions.
