A Fresh Look at Guidance Practitioner Professionalism
Cedefop has monitored quality assurance in guidance systems for over 20 years. Recently, it has embarked on updating its work on professionalism in career guidance, which goes back to 2009 when it published a study on professional standards and the design of a framework.
Today, Cedefop’s online Inventory of lifelong guidance systems and practices, launched in 2020, provides cross-country information on guidance systems, policies and practices. It also offers thematic sections on quality assurance, practitioner qualifications and training, user access, interservice coordination and stakeholder cooperation, ICT use, guidance for specific groups and settings, and social inclusion indicators.
