Introducing Career Education and Development: A Guide for personnel in educational institutions in developed and developing countries,by Colin McCowan, Malcolm McKenzie and Mansi Shah. A second edition was published in mid 2022 and is now available.

Introducing Career Education and Development focuses on taking a proactive approach to helping young people manage their own career development. It advocates implementing a program of activities in educational institutions to assist them to develop the understanding, attitudes, skills, and experiences to be able to make informed career decisions and take deliberate career-related actions throughout their lives.  The book is a compilation of the successful work and research that Col has done in both developed and developing countries over the past few years. As such, it aims to be very readable and practical.
