Imagining new perspectives on work – the role of career development in shaping futures.

In recognition of the 20th Anniversary of The International Centre for Guidance Studies (iCeGS), we are hosting an international conference.

The conference title is “Imagining new perspectives on work – the role of career development in shaping futures.” The event aims to examine how the concept of work might develop and evolve over the next decade and in conjunction with this how the role of career development practitioners might need to adapt to continue supporting individuals in the future.

Keynote speakers include:

  • Professor David Blustein, (Boston College, USA)
  • Professor Ronald Sultana (University of Malta)
  • Dr Phoebe Moore (University of Leicester)
  • Dr Deirdre Hughes OBE (University of Warwick)
  • Professor Tristram Hooley (Careers and Enterprise Company, University of Derby)
  • Dr Siobhan Neary (Head of the International Centre for Guidance Studies, University of Derby)
  • Dr Jo Hutchinson (SQW)

The conference will focus on key themes shaping the concept of career and the way in which career guidance is theorised and practiced. Themes are likely to include globalisation, social change and technology.
