Relating Theory to Practice making theory
practical practice thoughtful
  • Theory without practice is meaningless, but
    practice without theory is blind.
  • Without theoretical frameworks to guide our
    practice, there is a danger that there will be
    too much reliance on common sense.

adapted from NICEC Journal
4
Relating Theory to Practice
  • Career Theories
  • Explanations of the choice process
  • Career development over time
  • Models of Careers Work
  • Providing practical techniques for delivery

5
Careers Work metaphors
  • Career as positioning - in a race
  • Career as travelling - on a journey 
  • How we talk shapes what we do - and how we do it.

6
Careers Work metaphors
  • Different metaphors for our work have different
    consequences for how we see our relationship with
    our clients
  • educators not travel agents
  • working with partners not serving customers
  • in a race our work is to help people get into a
    winning position - in a journey to help them
    explore other possibilities

7
Guidance Models DOTS and new DOTS (CPI)
  • Generally agreed
  • Guidance
  • is a learning process, which enables informed and
    better decision-making as well as developing
    self-management skills.
  • Transformational not transactional
  • Traditional approach
  • largely focussed on helping people make immediate
    decisions through face-to-face interviews
  • Modern approach
  • broader approach, which also encompasses the
    development of Career Management Skills essential
    to becoming a Lifelong Learner such as the
    ability to make and implement effective career
    decisions.

  • CPI Coverage - Process - Influences
  • sets out a basis for the future of careers-work
    across-the-board.
  • It is a 'coverage-process-influences' (post-DOTS)
    model for the work.
  • It points to the importance, not only of
    information-coverage, but also of
    learning-processes and emotional-and-social
    influences.

Listen
  • When I ask you to listen to me and you start
    giving me advice
  • You have not done what I asked.
  • When I ask you to listen to me and you begin to
    tell me
  • Why I shouldnt feel this way
  • You are trampling on my feelings
  • When I ask you to listen to me and you feel you
    have to do something
  • To solve my problems, you have failed me,
  • Strange as that may seem.
  •  
  • Listen! All I asked was that you listen, not to
    talk or to do, just hear me.
  • Advice is cheap. You can get both Dear Abbey and
    Billy Graham
  • In the same newspaper.
  • And I can do for myself, I am not helpless,
  • Maybe discouraged and faltering, but not
    helpless.
  •  
  • When you do something for me that I can do and
    need to do for myself
  • You contribute to my fear and weakness.
  • But, when you accept as a simple fact that I do
    feel what I feel,
  • No matter how irrational,

When you do something for me that I can do and
need to do for myself You contribute to my fear
and weakness.

need to be? How will I get there?
What are my actual and potential abilities? What
am I capable of achieving? What is important to
me in life/work? Where will I suitably fit in the
world out there? Do I understand how life and
work are changing? Do I match up to the
requirements?
Can SOAR prompt reflection, action and
articulation for careers of lifelong learning?

Five-stage Career Management Cycle
  • Where am I now?
  • (Self)
  • Where do I want to be?
  • (Opportunities)
  • How do I get there?
  • (Decisions)
  • What support do I need to get there?
  • (Transitions)
  • How can I keep reviewing and improving?
  • (Life-long Learning)

65
Facilitation aids
  • Trainer's notes, scripts and master copies of all
    the exercises and activities required to deliver
    group or individual sessions. The latter consists
    of diagnostic tools, card-sorts, questionnaires
    and progress files. This programme is about
    longer-term career aspirations and covers
    elements such as motivation and broadening and
    stretching individuals to ensure they reach their
    full potential. The pack is self-contained and
    can be used in a highly flexible way the
    programme can be delivered over a number of days,
    weeks or months according to client needs.

66
Windmills Skills Cards
  • Focuses on those special skills we are really
    good at and which we love using our 'prime
    skills'. The resource uses a matrix and a pack
    of 42 cards to help people develop their career
    focus and improve their ability to promote
    themselves. It asks them to clearly identify
    not only their full range of prime skills, but
    also the skills they enjoy using but need to
    develop as well as the ones they are neither
    good at nor enjoy using. Once an individual has
    identified these prime skills, ensuring their job
    includes as many of them as possible will
    guarantee they enjoy what they do.

67
Working, Learning, Playing and Giving (WLPG)
  • Is difficult for people to look at their career
    without considering how it fits into the broader
    context of their whole life. Looks at the four
    key dimensions that make up their life
  • Working
  • Learning
  • Playing
  • Giving
  • Considers how they can successfully blend these
    to create and live the life they want.

68
Working, Learning, Playing and Giving (WLPG)
  • WLPG aims to help individuals achieve what is
    really important to them their 'Life's
    Essentials' and ensure they make the most of
    their potential. It provides inspiration and
    encouragement from successful case studies of
    people who have already used these ideas to
    transform their lives. Using the same simple
    skills we all bring to planning our annual
    holiday, the process takes individuals through a
    range of creative and thought-provoking
    activities. In seven key stages it lets them
    explore how they want to live their life and
    helps them develop a customised life plan to make
    it happen.
