Striking the Right Note: The Cultural Preparedness Approach to Developing Resonant Career Guidance Programmes
Arulmani, G.
International Journal for Educational and Vocational Guidance, v11 n2 p79-93 Jul 2011
Cultural preparedness is presented as a conceptual framework that could guide the development of culture-resonant interventions. The "Jiva" careers programme is presented as a case study to illustrate a method of career and livelihood planning based upon Indian epistemology and cultural practices. Social cognitive environments and career beliefs are discussed as key factors that characterise a group's orientation to career development. An impact analysis is described. Traditional knowledge is highlighted as an important resource for constructing career guidance programmes to address the needs of clients from different cultural heritages.
