In this episode we talk about the messiness of academic career trajectories and hear about the value early career staff bring into the university ecosystem.

Emma Jones and Li Wei guest on Academia et al S01E02

Professor Li Wei, IOE Director and Dean.

Dr Emma Jones, Lecturer in Education and Gender.

Dr Keri Wong invites IOE Director and Dean Professor Li Wei to share his own path into academia, and his vision for staff at IOE. Dr Emma Jones joins the episode to talk about how the Early Career Network was set up and how it has developed over time at IOE.

Finally our guests discuss career precarity and progression, the recent wider conversations around pensions and set them in wider issues of intergenerational justice. Is it ever too early to think about retirement, and what support is out there that can help right now?
