Today I’m presenting at the CEIAG Conference in York. I’m going to be talking about the current state of careers work in schools and thinking about how this relates to wider political issues.
As you can see I’ve thrown in a Trump motif (some might say irresponsibly). However, in the current environment the link between careers and politics, between the aspirations of the individual and the social frame which we build for these aspirations is more obvious and more important than ever. I’m going to be talking about this today and making the argument that career development can offer us a way to think through our reaction to some of the political, economic and demographic shifts and that it can be an important way to help us to strategise a way forwards both as individuals and as a society.
