About our site

WELCOME to the website of the International Centre for Career Development and Public Policy. The primary purpose of this website is to facilitate international policy sharing and learning through the international exchange of knowledge and information concerning public policy and career development issues. The site contains many types of documents from different corners of the world linking career guidance and public policies for education, vocational training, employment, and social policy fields.

Its intended users are policy developers, national authorities, international institutions, managers of career guidance delivery agencies, leaders of national and international associations of guidance practitioners, researchers, and trainers of guidance practitioners.

The documents can be accessed by:

  • World region
  • Target group
  • Language
  • Organisation
  • Topic
  • Document type

You may use the BROWSE feature on the right hand side of this page to view the documents. Alternatively you can browse the files using the Policy and Research feature on the horizontal Tool Bar.

The knowledge base for the site has two main sources:

  • documents, studies, reports, publications and news provided to the site by you the viewers and by other international contacts; and
  • proceedings from international symposia on career development and public policy.

Policy and Research Section

This contains studies, reports and other publications sent to us by many countries. When you browse by TOPIC, the files are categorised mainly according to the sub-themes/table of contents of the European Commission and OECD joint publication Career guidance: a handbook for policy makers (2004).

Symposia Section

The papers and proceedings from the International Symposia are stored in the section Symposia. The most recent of these was hosted Hungary in 2011 which examined the positioning of policies for career guidance within human resource development strategies in changing political, economic and social circumstances. The previous symposia were held in New Zealand in 2009 (key issues in policy development for career guidance-role of the citizen, culture, technology, evidence base), UK in 2007 (career development, sustainable growth and social equity), and Australia in 2006 ( career development and workforce development). Web references are also given there to papers and proceedings from the international symposia hosted by Canada in 1999 and 2001, to the OECD conference in Toronto 2003, and the pan-Canadian Symposium of 2004.

Languages of the Website

The main language of the web site at this point is English but we have documents on the site in the following languages: Arabic, Spanish, Portuguese, French, German, Italian, Hebrew, Hungarian, Danish, Finnish, and Slovak. In any of the sections we welcome relevant reports in their language of origin accompanied by an abstract in English and in the language of origin. In the Blogs, comments in all languages are welcome.
