Abstract

The Pacific Islands provide an example of cultural heterogeneity compounded with economic, historical and geographic backgrounds that limit the scope for educational and vocational achievements as well as the study of career development. Although education is a regional priority, an emphasis on formal system of assistance for career development is not evident; it is embedded within personal self-direction, family traditions or the educational system. A tentative model is proposed for (a) the analysis of educational and vocational achievements; and (b) for career development research in the region.
