Moments of choice

Can I just point everyone to some really interesting research that has just been published by the Careers & Enterprise Company looking at how young people make career choices.

There is a very interesting piece of background research by the Behavioural Insights Team which explores career decision making from a behavioural science point of view.

This is then followed up by a summary of this and some other research commissioned by the Careers & Enterprise Company which explores these issues of career decision making against the current market of career support.

Finally the company has produced a response document which invites further responses from stakeholders.

All of this stuff if worth reading as it sets out some interesting and challenging new ideas on how people make career decisions.


Book now for Rie’s lecture and workshop in October


We are very lucky to have Rie Thomsen from Denmark visiting iCeGS in October. While she is with us she will deliver the iCeGS Annual Lecture and a workshop.

In these events Rie will ask how career guidance interacts with the everyday lives of people and their communities. Based on her book Career Guidance in Communities she will discuss the possibility of framing guidance as part of a community and not as an activity separate from it.   

We expect these events to be very popular so we’d advise that you book early to avoid disappointment.
