Tony Watts, Founding Fellow of NICEC, retired in 2015, after decades of work in career development. To mark this event, NICEC published Career Development Policy and Practice: The Tony Watts Reader, with the idea of bringing together Tony’s most important writings into a single volume. Some of his work is out of print and much of the rest is tucked away in journals that can be difficult for people to access outside of universities. The editors, NICEC Fellows Tristram Hooley and Lyn Barham, wanted to draw the most enduring material together and give it another lease of life. The book offers a compendium of Tony's most influential writings and is a must for researchers and practitioners within the career development sector.
