Alongside the NICEC Journal, NICEC Seminars and Network meetings are the key means of sharing ideas and evidence around our network of Fellows, members and other interested people.


NICEC holds 6 Fellows meetings per year. These are followed by either early evening seminars (4 a year) or full afternoon Network meetings (2 a year).

NICEC seminars and network meetings are included in the membership fees paid by Fellows and Members.
Others are most welcome to attend for a modest charge - £20 for seminars and £40 for Network Meetings.

Please contact: Dr Robin Mellors-Bourne

Intergenerational personal career theory

Families are influential on younger people and our seminar considers this and other intergenerational dynamics in career development.

John Gough will share some insights from a research project concerned with the impact of parents and carers on the career aspirations and choices of young people.  

Janet Sheathwill bring aspects of intergenerational theory into career practice, sharing a theoretical base to working with clients and their genograms and considering how we might apply an intergenerational career approach with different client groups.

Lyn Barham will chair the event.
