dc.description.abstractEnglish: The purpose of this study was to design a strategy for assisting Humanities students to reflect on choices they have made in order to move towards sustainable careers. Humanities students are believed to have difficulties in finding employment after their graduation. Figures in the Humanities and Social Sciences have been concerned by a lack of appreciation and recognition of this problem by policymakers and administrators in the Educational sector. The focus of this study is therefore on academic practitioners in education institutions who help students make decisions on career choice, particularly socio-economic, political and other contextual factors. This study was further informed by Pryor and Bright’s (2011) ‘Chaos Theory of Careers’ (CTC) that enables individuals to capitalise on change and chance in designing a career that enacts personal meaning and social construction. The discussion also espouses the Critical Emancipatory Research (CER) as the theoretical framework that informs this study. The grounding principles of CER were communicated by the Participatory Action Research (PAR), as adopted in this study for data generation. Critical discourse analysis (CDA) is used to analyse data. In this study I argue that life is uncertain as everything is subject to change, revealing limitation and thus vulnerability. It investigates approaches available to meet the challenges and possibilities of uncertainty in sustainable career choice, aimed at helping students to reflexively make sustainable career choice. The value of this research was to enlighten the plight of Humanities students in choosing their careers in Higher Education.en_ZA
dc.description.abstractAfrikaans: Die doel van hierdie studie is om 'n strategie te ontwerp vir help eesteswetenskappe studente om te besin oor loopbaan keuses wat hulle in orde te beweeg na volhoubare loopbaan keuse gemaak het. Geesteswetenskappe studente word geglo dat probleme in die vind van indiensneming ná hul gradeplegtigheid het. Geesteswetenskappe en Sosiale Wetenskappe het bekommerd oor die gebrek aan waardering en erkenning deur die beleidmakers en administrateurs in 'n opvoedkundige sektor. Die fokus van hierdie studie is op studente en akademiese praktisyns onderwys instellings wat help studente om besluite te neem op beroepskeuse. Klem word geplaas op die sosio-ekonomiese, politieke en ander kontekstuele faktore wat 'n invloed loopbaan keuse. Hierdie studie word verder ingelig deur Pryor en Bright (2011) se Chaos Teorie van Loopbane (CTC), wat individue in staat stel om te kapitaliseer op verandering en die kans in die ontwerp loopbaan wat persoonlike betekenis en sosiale konstruksie te implementeer. Die bespreking ook verloof die Kritieke emansiperende Navorsing (CER) as die teoretiese raamwerk wat hierdie studie lig. Die begronding beginsels van CER gekommunikeer deur die deelnemende aksienavorsing (PAR), soos PAR in hierdie studie vir data generasie aangeneem word. Kritiese diskoersanalise (CDA) word gebruik om data te ontleed. In hierdie studie argumenteer ons dat die lewe is onseker alles is onderhewig aan verandering. Die situasie dan bring onsekerheid; die onsekerheid openbaar dan beperking en beperking seine kwesbaarheid. Hierdie studie ondersoek dus benaderings beskikbaar is om die uitdagings en moontlikhede van onsekerheid in volhoubare loopbaan keuse te ontmoet. Hierdie studie het ten doel om studente te help refleksief maak volhoubare loopbaan keuse op 'n inrigting vir hoër onderwys. Die waarde van hierdie navorsing is om die lot van die Geesteswetenskappe studente verlig in die keuse van hul loopbane in Hoër Onderwys.af
