Career information literacy and decision-making
  The main aim of this doctoral study is to generate new knowledge on career development learning with reference to decision-making amongst young people in S2-S6 preparing for their lives beyond school education. As well as developing theoretical insight, the findings will contribute to the effective design and delivery of enhanced careers services that take into account the means by which these young people recognise, respond to, and make decisions about varied learning and career opportunities.

Recognising the crucial role of information in career decision-making, the focus of the work is identifying means of enhancing career information literacy amongst young people as key to their career development learning, and to their future career success in the challenging employment environment of the Information Society
