The world around us is changing fast than ever, implying that we all need to continue to grow and develop in our careers or risk being left behind. This requires us to be adaptable, self-motivated lifelong learners. CERIC’s latest literature search Lifelong Learning and Career Development explores how lifelong learning practices enable successful career transitions in a knowledge economy.

Topics covered in the literature search include:

  • Theories and research on personal and professional fulfilment
  • Lifelong learning in higher education and training
  • Lifelong learning and technology
  • Cultural differences in enabling lifelong learning and career success
  • Barriers to lifelong learning for excluded groups
  • Preparing youth for lifelong learning and principles for adult learners
  • Work-integrated lifelong learning models
  • Employer role in lifelong learning and workforce development

There are 44 literature searches now available, including Career Development Theory and Career Management Models, Economic Benefits of Career Guidance, Parental Involvement in Career Development, Labour Market Trends, Mental Health Issues in the Workplace, and more.

Featuring comprehensive listings of key research and articles in career development, literature searches highlight critical points of current knowledge.

As a student, academic or practitioner in the field, literature searches are helpful if you are researching the latest thinking or proven best practices. They are also valuable if you are considering a submission to CERIC for project partnership funding in order to gain an overview of major work already done in your area of interest.
