Hordern, Jim – Journal of Vocational Education and Training, 2016

Christodoulou, Michael – Journal of Vocational Education and Training, 2016
The ideal-typical distinction of normal/choice biography has been adopted by many youth researchers over the last 17 years as a means of approaching how vocational adolescents take decisions in a context in which life transitions are reversible and unsafe. In this article, we aim to show that this distinction is overestimated, by focusing on a…
