    • Career Education: What does it comprise? How can it be implemented? What are its success factors? Tony Watts
    • Plan
      • Rationale
      • Content
      • Delivery models
      • Success factors: issues to be addressed
    • Rationale
      • Old concept: progression up ordered hierarchy within an organisation or profession
      • New concept: lifelong progression in learning and work
      • Move from careers for some to careers for all
      • Move from choosing a career to constructing a career
      • Hence lifelong guidance: public good as well as private good
      • Move from ‘medical’ model of guidance (diagnosis; prescription) to learning model
    • Content: DOTS
      • Self awareness
      • Opportunity awareness
      • Decision learning
      • Transition learning
    • Content: Blueprint
      • Personal management
      • Learning and work exploration
      • Life/work building
    • Related Areas
      • Personal and social education
      • Employability skills
      • VET
    • Delivery Models
      • Stand-alone
      • Subsumed
      • Infused
      • Extra-curricular
      • Pupil portfolios
    • Success Factors: Issues
      • Timing
      • Methods
      • Content (enterprise; critical understanding of work; digital literacy related to career development)
      • Assessment
      • Roles (counsellors / teachers)
      • Policy specification
    • Timing
      • Common model: before first point at which significant subject choices are made
      • But argument for starting earlier: perceptions of self and work are formed early; so interventions need to be early too
    • Methods
      • Balance between:
      • - Didactic teaching
      • - Experiential learning, using group processes
      • - Experience-based learning (work experience, work shadowing)
    • Content
      • Balance between:
      • - Self awareness
      • - Opportunity awareness
      • - Decision learning
      • - Transition learning
      • Also, attention to:
      • - Enterprise
      • - Critical understanding of work
      • - Digital literacy in relation to career development
    • Assessment
      • Balance between:
      • - Assessment of learning
      • - Assessment for learning
    • Roles
      • Career education (based largely on learning in classroom groups): a teaching process
      • Career counselling (mainly one-to-one): a counselling process
      • But not watertight compartments
      • Need for strong and flexible partnerships between teachers and counsellors
    • Policy Specification
      • Balance between:
      • - What is specified centrally (possibly by legislation)
      • - What is left for schools to decide
      • Case for curriculum framework
      • Involvement of parents and local employers in design and evaluation of programmes
