I have written a lot on this blog about the five signposts to a socially just approach to career guidance. In the latest issue of the NICEC Journal, Ronald Sultana, Rie Thomsen and I have published a new article which discusses this model in more detail and provides some of the theoretical underpinning to it.
In the article we explore each of the five signposts:
- build critical consciousness;
- name oppression;
- question what is normal;
- encourage people to work together; and
- work at a range of levels.
And explore what underpins them and how they might be used in practice. Hopefully the article can be useful to people who are wanting to work with the social justice approach to career guidance.
It is available for free on the University of Derby institutional repository or through the NICEC Journal.
