Our understanding of the nature and importance of careers is undergoing considerable change as the world of work continues its evolution from an enterprise industrial-based model to an information, enterprise and service-based model. Career development and education are becoming more important than ever as counsellors, mentors/supervisors, teachers, parents and others help prepare students to plan and prepare for, transition to, and participate effectively in these new work environments.
This course will introduce students to the major theories of career development and associated practices that are relevant for persons training as school guidance officers, educators and career practitioners and others who are interested in the broad area of career planning and development. Emphasis will be given to integration of theory and practice within educational/learning environments. Emerging theories and technologies will also be considered. It is expected that students will have access to an educational or training setting in which they are able to apply the concepts and principles studied in this course.
