Introduction
My work seeks to improve our understanding of how educators interpret policy and curriculum to make sense of career and life planning, work-integrated-learning, adult learning, and other educational multidisciplinary and public policies. I currently serve on the Board of Directors of CERIC, the Asia Pacific Career Development Association, and was a Member of Team Canada (2017-2019) for the International Symposia on Career Development and Public Policy (ICCDPP).

In this article, we propose a framework for understanding career guidance policy. We use a systems theory approach informed by Gramscian theories of politics and power to make sense of this complexity. Firstly, we argue that career guidance policy is made by and for people and that there is a need to recognise all of the political and civil society...
