      Hooley, Tristram; Sultana, Ronald G.; University of Derby (National Institute for Career Education and Counselling (NICEC) and CDI, 2016-04)
      This editorial sets the context for issue 36 of the NICEC journal which is focused on social justice and career guidance. The editorial explores the key themes of the issue highlighting the social justice tradition within the career guidance field and making the case for a strong focus on social justice. However the editorial also highlights the tensions that exist between career guidance’s orientation to the individual and understandings of social justice which are more socially orientated. The editorial concludes by arguing that if career guidance is to formulate a meaningful response to social injustice it needs to draw on diverse theoretical traditions and stimulate new forms of practice.

      Hooley, Tristram; Neary, Siobhan; Morris, Marian; Mackay, Susan; International Centre for Guidance Studies (iCeGS) and SQW (2015)
      This paper focuses on how public policy shapes career guidance and establishes a system within which individuals can access career support. Governments are critical to career guidance primarily as funders of the activity, but also importantly as regulators, coordinators and agents of system change. The paper looks at the evidence base on career guidance and public policy, explore the rationales for public policy involvement in the field, examine different models and systems and explore some key issues that underpin successful system design.
