I’m Tristram Hooley.
I’m interested in career, career development, career guidance and career education. I’m also interested in social science research methods, learning technology and plenty more besides. I post about all of this stuff on this blog.
I am Director of Research, The Careers & Enterprise Company; Professor II, Inland Norway University of Applied Sciences; Professor of Career Education at the International Centre for Guidance Studies, University of Derby; Adjunct Professor at the School of Linguistics, Adult and Specialist Education, University of Southern Queensland; a fellow of NICEC; a Winston Churchill Fellow; and a member of the Editorial Board of the British Journal of Guidance and Counselling.
I am available to supervise or examine doctorates. I am currently supervising doctoral work on:
- Gamification and career guidance
- The career journeys of graduates from Orkney and Shetland
- The role of parents in career education in the Netherlands
- Careers, career guidance and the gig economy
- Career transitions in the construction sector
- Career identity in Norway
Researchers that I have supervised have completed theses on the following subjects.
- Communities that care: an insight into male career patterns in a small neighbourhood
- How teachers conceive their role when working with Generation Z pupils in a technological learning environment
- Youth mentoring across professional settings: a pedagogic approach to social inclusion
I have examined seven doctoral theses (2 PhD and 5 professional doctorates).
