17 July 2020 14:42

Cedefop has initiated an in-depth study focusing on the effects of coronavirus on career guidance. The study is conducted jointly with the European Commission, the European Training Foundation (ETF), the International Center for Career Development and Public Policy (ICCDPP), the International Labor Organization (ILO), the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and UNESCO. The study is an expression of a shared commitment to support and universal access to guidance systems and services, as presented in the joint statement Investing in Career Guidance (https://www.cedefop.europa.eu/en/publications-and-resources/publications/2227 ), published in December 2019.

The study aims to examine how career guidance services have adapted and the role of guidance in social and economic strategies, policies and measures during the recovery period and beyond. The results are expected to influence future career guidance policies and programs.

The detailed questionnaire is designed mainly for respondents who develop and/or monitor the implementation of career guidance policy and provision, such as national, regional and other bodies responsible for the management of career guidance services, as well as relevant private and non-governmental organizations.

A joint publication for the six organizations with detailed survey results is expected before the end of 2020. The activities for the development of the questionnaire and the analysis of its results are part of the continuous cooperation of the interdepartmental working group for work-based learning.
