We are happy to announce a second run of the the online programme Career guidance for social justice hosted by Norway Inland University of Applied Sciences.
This online course will examine the way in which recent theory and research in career guidance has engaged with the issue of social justice. It will explore what this means for careers professionals in practice asking how they can challenge oppression and help to emancipate individuals and communities. All attendees will have an opportunity to develop new resources that they can use in their practice. By the end of the course participants will have explored:
- What is meant by social justice?
- How do our careers interact with notions of wealth, power, politics and justice?
- How can career guidance contribute to social justice?
- Can you help people in practical ways, whilst also supporting them to struggle for a more just world?
- What practices, models and theories can be used to support emancipatory forms of career guidance?
- How will digitalisation and digital social media affect, contribute or challenge guidance for social justice?
The importance of social justice in career guidance has been increased by the pandemic which has had a range of hitherto unforeseen impact on our societies, education systems and labour markets.
In the course you will have the chance to meet with students from the Nordic and Baltic countries and share thoughts and experience in small group meetings with teachers who are in the forefront of the field.
The course is designed to meet the needs of busy students also engaged in other educational activities and work. The period runs from September 14th to the end of November 2021. We are using Zoom as a meeting place for four sessions on the following dates:
- September 14th

All the zoom sessions will take place at 1pm to 3pm (Oslo time) and will include both plenary sessions with the whole group and reflective discussions in smaller groups. Between the Zoom sessions, you are expected to actively engage with the learning materials in our learning management system (Canvas).
