Description


Changing boundaries: career, identity and self. An international conference on research, practice and policy in career development.

NICEC invites you ...

... to explore the ways in which boundaries are changing and what the implications might be for theory, practice and policy-making in career development in a world where once taken-for-granted assumptions are being challenged.

How do we reinvent careers for the 21st Century? The volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world - and more specifically the anticipation of the changing post-Brexit landscape in April 2019 - brings into sharp focus the way that previously unplanned events can alter our view of ourselves, our identity, and our career development. As the UK and Europe enter a period of transition we are reminded how many types of transition are navigated through career development: education and work; the spatial and geographical; youth and aging; conceptions of gender; socio-cultural shifts; etc.

Confirmed keynote speakers include Professor Michael Arthur, Suffolk University Boston, USA, Dr Mary McMahon, University of Queensland, Australia, Professor Rie Thomsen, Aarhus University, Denmark and John Amaechi, OBE, United Kingdom.

Workshops and seminars will focus on innovation in research, policy and practice in careers work in Education, in the Workplace, and in the Community.

The conference is organised around three broad themes reflecting NICEC’s focus on the relationship between policy, research and practice:

  • Changing context for work and career
  • Shifting themes and concepts
  • Innovating practice
