This report was produced as part of the work activities of a European Union funded project entitled Developing National Forums for Guidance in Six Member States that concluded in November 2006. The issue of the role of the beneficiary of guidance services in the design, monitoring, and evaluation of such services was first raised in the Council of Ministers of Education Resolution on Lifelong Guidance (2004) whose text can be found also in the Articles Repository of this site.
The following themes are examined in the report:
- Why involve users in policy development?
- Defining user involvement
- Principles of user involvement
- Possible approaches to user involvement.
This is the first report of its kind worldwide and is highly recommended reading.
