Professional Socialisation of Valuers: What the Literature and Professional Bodies Offers
Page, Geoff
International Education Journal, v5 n5 p105-116 2005
Professional socialisation refers to the acquisition of values, attitudes, skills and knowledge pertaining to a professional subculture. This paper reviews the literature about professional socialisation and the dimensions that contribute to the process and definition of professional socialisation. This literature analysis is undertaken of cognate professions because there is no direct literature relating to valuers. The summary of the legislative requirements within Australia and the membership requirements of professional valuation bodies are examined to determine if these include elements of professional socialisation from a real world perspective. (Contains 2 tables.)
