New European Guidelines for Policies and Systems for Lifelong Guidance Published!
New guidelines for policies and systems for lifelong guidance have just been published by the European Lifelong Guidance Policy Network (ELGPN).
The aim of these guidelines is to provide advice to policy makers in the education and employment sectors on how to develop policies for lifelong guidance and on how to organise career guidance services for the general population and for different groups in society.
The guidelines cover a range of issues that are common to all sectors and services: strategic leadership, access, funding, ICT, career management skills, careers information, quality assurance, evidence collection, and the training and qualifications of guidance practitioners.
They also provide separate policy advice for services for each of the following target groups: school pupils, VET participants, higher education students, adult learners, employed and unemployed persons, older adults, young people at risk, and disadvantaged groups in society.
