Minister for Education Norma Foley TD has today announced the establishment of a new National Policy Group for Lifelong Guidance as recommended by Indecon in its review of Career Guidance Tools and Information.

The National Lifelong Guidance Policy Group comprises senior officials from the Department of Education, Department of Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science, Department of Social Protection, Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth and the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment. The Department of Education will chair the group.

The role of the national policy group is to steer the development of a coherent, long-term strategic framework for lifelong guidance, ensuring that the response to the recommendations of the Indecon report is consistent with the development of national and international approaches to lifelong guidance.

The policy group will engage with relevant stakeholders to guide and advise its work via lead Departments as appropriate. Minister Foley announced that the Department of Education will establish an advisory group comprising relevant stakeholders in school guidance, in the coming weeks.
