"Careers as Voyages of Self-Discovery": Why Men Return to Education
Hancock, Adrian
Studies in Continuing Education, v34 n2 p191-206 2012
This article critically examines the career development of a number of male adult returners to further education and explores the factors that influenced their career decision-making. It also explores the specific reasons why these men returned to education and in so doing connects with the work of Scanlon. The paper argues that men's decision to return to education is best understood as the outcome of prior career development/learning. Although reference is made to a number of theories of career choice the main focus is Hodkinson and colleagues' careership theory.
