It is important that schools deliver career education and career services to all students in order to develop the capacity of students to adapt to a changing world of work. From ethical and accountability viewpoints, school career education programs and career services should be evidence-based, known to improve student career development outcomes and cost-effective.
In this practical text, experienced career guidance professional, Catherine Hughes, shows how to design and deliver career services for students in the upper middle and secondary years (typically Years 7-12) that are cost-effective and that adopt a strategic approach to the application of career interventions known to improve student career development.

Essential reading for career practitioners, school leadership teams, and curriculum coordinators, topics covered include:
* cost-effective approaches to career service delivery in high schools
* effectiveness of different career treatment modalities
* the cognitive information processing approach to differentiated career service delivery
* using the Career Adapt-Abilities Scale in a differentiated career service delivery model.

This is book two in the series Careers Work in Schools, written to support the work of career development facilitators in schools - from those charged with teaching a work-related subject for the first time to seasoned school-based career practitioners wanting to refresh their knowledge, understanding and practice.
