Shaping the Future: Connecting Career Development and Workforce Development--Australia Country Paper
Australian Journal of Career Development, v15 n3 p25-32 Spr 2006
This paper provides an overview of the career development industry in Australia, noting the achievements in the industry since the 1999 Symposium, and linking the current Australian situation to the 2006 Symposium themes of human capital, labour supply, employability skills, career development services for workforce development, older workers, and the information base for public policy making. The paper highlights the progress made in career development since the 1999 Symposium, with productive and collaborative partnerships between policymakers and practitioners, facilitated by the development of the practitioners' representative body, the Career Industry Council of Australia. The paper concludes that a firm foundation has been established on which to base the work still needing to be done in the field.
