CEDEFOP – Improving lifelong guidance policies and systems: Using common European reference tools

This publication is an introduction to three common European reference tools for guidance:

  • aims and principles of lifelong guidance provision;
  • reference points for quality assurance systems for guidance provision in Europe;
  • key features of lifelong guidance systems.

It explains the background to their development and provides suggestions on how to use each tool to improve existing policies and systems for guidance at national, regional and local levels, and for peer learning at national and European levels.

The European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training (Cedefop) is the European Union's reference centre for vocational education and training.
