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.

I have examined seven doctoral theses (2 PhD and 5 professional doctorates).

  1. Hi Tristram! My name is Silvia and I´m a brazilian pshychologist. In Brazil, I study and work as a Career Consultant. I really enjoyed your blog and I intend to share it in my facebook page. I also write about career in my blog. I´d like to share some thoughts about this area and exchange experiences. Good job! Tks, Silvia

  2. Hi Tristram, my name is Anthony. I’m interested in children’s conceptions of adult roles (occupations and employment) … my focus is not ostensibly in careers advice as the vehicle for this, i.e. I don’t see primarily that the teacher’s role is to focus on it, other than as a descriptor of the adult (mainly) real word. I’ve posted recently on tes (citizenship/primary) trying to find teachers who are interested in KS2 material which covers occupations … I’m thinking here of Anne Stewart’s (1980s)Cherrystones series, and others contemporary versions … with no feedback.
    I am looking in this area as a new social researcher (UG 2nd year Sheffield Uni. … mature student ex TILL) who will likely do a sample, city wide, survey to establish some idea of current cross curricula activities and teachers’ views on my idea of their role. Like to know if you have any views or interest in this project.

  3. Hi Anthony I’d be very interested to hear more about your project. Why don’t you email me and we can discuss further.
