Career Guidance

Refers to services and activities intended to assist individuals of any age and at any point throughout their lives to make educational, training, and occupational choices and to manage their careers. Such services may be found in schools, universities and colleges, training institutions, public employment services, the workplace, the voluntary or community sector, and in the private sector. The activities may take place on an individual or group basis, and be face-to-face or at a distance (including help lines and web-based services). They include career information provisions (in print, ICT-based and other forms), assessment and self-assessment tools, counseling interviews, career education programs (to help individuals develop their self-awareness, opportunity awareness, and career management skills), taster programs (to sample options before choosing them), work search programs, and transition services.
