Have you booked to attend our next What Works seminar on 26th June 2017. The seminar will feature Jonathan Buzzeo (National Institute of Economic & Social Research) presenting some new research on work experience, job shadowing and workplace visits and Joy Williams (Institute for Employment Studies) who will examine what works when involving young people in volunteering.
I like to keep people up to date with my latest citation counts. I’ve just seen my h-index rise to 14 which pleases me greatly. In essence this is an empty statistic which I check obsessively and derive some self-worth from.
The new paper that has made it into the charmed circle is Evaluating the impact of career management skills module and internship programme within a university business school in which we evaluated a HE career management skills programme and internship and found that it made a difference to students employability.
In order to get my H-index up again people will have to cite that paper again as well as starting to cite one of the following more often.
- Teachers and careers
- A career postcode lottery? Local authority provision of youth and career support following the 2011 Education Act
- Understanding how people choose to pursue taught postgraduate study
- Tackling unemployment, supporting business and developing careers
- The economic benefits of career guidance
So you know what you have to do! Get citing!
The Leicester LEP have just produced a brilliant new film explaining what The Careers & Enterprise Company – Enterprise Adviser Network is all about. It even features a cameo from me!
