Response to the National Career Development Strategy Green Paper
Australian Journal of Career Development, v21 n3 p33-49 Spr 2012
The National Career Development Strategy Green Paper paper proposes a strategy that is committed to these principles: (1) quality through Career Industry Council of Australia (CICA) benchmarking, quality frameworks and processes and as a risk management strategy; (2) lifetime access to career development services; (3) development of career self-management skills and opportunity awareness; (4) integration through the establishment of a national career services, well marketed to achieve wide public appeal. The Career Industry Council of Australia is the national peak body for the career industry and has a vital interest in a successful outcome of an effective national strategy that results in a stronger national career development system that is good for individuals of all ages and good for the country. The Green Paper provides a useful summary of many of the issues that have been evident since the completion of the OECD review of career policy and programs more than a decade ago. The timing of this paper is particularly important because commitment to career development by the Australian Commonwealth Government has reached a low point, particularly since its location under the umbrella of the National Partnership on Youth Attainment and Transition. This article talks about the Career Industry Council of Australia and presents comments on key priorities and proposed direction for the National Career Development Strategy as proposed in the Green Paper.
