Effective Policy Framework for the Organisation of Careers Service

We have just agreed to make a paper that we wrote last year public. It addresses the question of what the most effective policy framework for the management of career guidance would be. It is based on a literature review.

Key findings include the fact that there are a range of public policy rationales which engage policymakers, that countries have a range of systems which range from non-existent to the development of a lifelong guidance system, there are a range of key features for such policy systems which address issues of access, which provide career management skills, which ensure the effective co-operation and co-ordination of the system and which attend to issues of quality assurance and evidence.
