Career Adaptability

The European project on Changing patterns of learning, working and career development across Europe has now been completed - the linked final report was produced in 2010.

The work was extended with qualitative interviews with participants from England and Norway in a follow-up study for UKCES on career adaptability (the ability to continue to make successful transitions across the lifecourse), which was published in August 2011: details and links given below:

Bimrose, J., Brown, A., Barnes, S-A. and Hughes, D.(2011) The role of career adaptability in skills supply, Evidence report 35. Main Report. Wath-upon-Dearne: UKCES.

Bimrose, J., Barnes, S-A., Brown, A. and Hughes, D.(2011) The role of career adaptability in skills supply, Evidence Report 35. Technical Report. Wath-upon-Dearne: UKCES.

We are, however, continuing to examine how people’s careers are changing and how people develop career adaptability - so we still interested in your experiences, so please contact us for further information.

    Interesting radio programme on brain plasticity:

    Argument was that brain continues to be plastic after early years development. It is possible to develop neural connections from learning and practising ways of thinking and acting at any age. Also more important to praise young children for their effort rather than for being intelligent. The latter will become demoralised if they tackle problems they cannot readily solve outside their comfort zone (they think they must not be intelligent after all), while the former welcome the challenge and an opportunity to work hard.
