I have just published an article in the new issue of Graduate Market Trends. It is called Careering towards a wall? Career guidance policy and election 2015. Since I wrote it the situation has moved on a bit with announcements from Labour and the publication of the manifestos. However, the basic argument still stands, political parties aren’t paying enough attention to career development issues.
Election fever is gripping the nation. The volume of political noise is growing daily. However, so far this noise has focused on issues like Ed Miliband’s two kitchens and the fact that a seagull once stole David Cameron’s sandwich. But, as the election gets closer the main political parties might start to talk more seriously about policy. The question is whether career guidance will be one of the policies being talked about.
