Patton, Wendy A. & McMahon, Mary L. (2001) Implementing Career Development Learning Programs. In Patton, Wendy A. & McMahon, Mary L. (Eds.) Career Development Programs: Preparation For Lifelong Career Decision Making. Australian Council for Educational Research, Melbourne, Australia, pp. 10-21.


The previous chapter firmly established the need for career guidance and identified broad differences in the positioning of career guidance within national policy agendas. It also emphasised the need to renew and refocus career guidance services within a lifelong learning framework. This chapter extends this perspective and focuses on the program component of career guidance services. This chapter will outline the following: • a rationale for a program approach to career development • current status of programs • what is included in career development programs • principles of good career development programs • steps in implementing programs • experiential learning approaches • evaluation of career development programs.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
