Future European co-operation in the field of policies and systems for lifelong guidance and the use of ICT in guidance policies, systems and practices were some of the main concerns of the Estonian EU Presidency conference, held in Talliin at the end of September with an attendance in excess of 200 persons, with the support of CEDEFOP, the ERASMUS + programme, the Ministry of Education and Research Estonia, and the INNOVE Foundation.
The conference consisted of keynote addresses, panel discussions, showcases of practice, and discussion groups on six subthemes:
- Integrated Lifelong Guidance Support
- Guidance for Upskilling for Longterm Unemployed
- Career Mobility and Labour Market Functioning
- Practitioner Competence
- Innovative Practices and Peer Learning
- Evidence and Accountability.
Discussion groups’ conclusions were summarised and messages from all of the activities and the survey were included in a final Conference Communique in the form of national and EU level recommendations.
The conference was livestreamed and uploaded to the Electronic Platform for Adult Learning in Europe (EPALE) so you can view all of the conference proceedings on that link.
