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

(2005) Cedefop - European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training

This booklet comprises three sets of common European instruments for reviewing lifelong guidance provision at national, regional and local levels and provides suggestions for their use during study visits and peer learning activities. The expert group on lifelong guidance developed the following European reference tools:

  • common aims and principles for lifelong guidance provision;
  • common reference points for quality assurance systems for guidance, especially from a citizen/user perspective;
  • key features of a systems model of lifelong guidance.

These tools are intended to help Member States improve and modernize their policies and systems through self-assessment and self-development of guidance provision at various levels of government.
