In Search of Professionalism

In Search of Professionalism

Jenny Willis 


My proposition equating professionalism with employability is simplistic and fails to address the complex mixture of knowledge, its practical application, generic skills, personal qualities and dispositions required of professionals.  The Chapter discusses the difficulties of planning learning opportunities to support the development of these skills and characteristics and the contentious nature of their assessment.   By comparing the intended learning outcomes with those that students perceive they have achieved during their professional placements, the research developed a conceptualisation of employability.  This builds upon Eraut’s (2007) notion of learning trajectories (CHAPTER A2) and Barnett’s (2003) recognition of the supercomplexity of today’s world. The model can be used by curriculum planners and also enables learners and teachers to monitor individual professional development.
