Career Journeys for Young People: A Starter Guide for Parents and Carers (chapter contribution)

Way back in 2005 I developed the idea of a booklet for Nottinghamshire young people on the world of work including information on the local labour market (What Work in Nottinghamshire). Over the years, I researched and created bespoke versions for locations across the UK including all the East Midlands areas, Hull and Humberside, Newark and Sherwood, Devon, Bournemouth and Poole, Torbay, Cornwall and Somerset, Suffolk and Norfolk.

The latter versions of these were written under the National Careers Service banner for the four separate East Midlands counties and seven Central Eastern areas and included versions for adults. This content was shared with other National Careers Service organisations as examples of good practice and it’s great to still see the content popping up in similar publications around the UK.
