Lifelong Learning in Europe – An inventory of guidance systems and practices

The national lifelong guidance systems records provide information about current policy developments and structures pertaining to career guidance, career education and career development in countries of the EU, EEA, EFTA and EU enlargement/accession countries.

The country records are based on information gathered and analysed by CareersNet experts during their respective mandate period. CareersNet is Cedefop’s network of independent experts in career guidance and career development, managed within the Lifelong guidance project area, Department for learning and employability.

Information made available for each country record aims to monitor and document relevant policy developments towards achieving the objectives laid down by the Council Resolution on better integrating lifelong guidance into lifelong learning strategies (2008) and the European Guidelines for Policies and Systems Development for Lifelong Guidance (ELGPN, 2015). The structure of the records closely reflects these documents.

The shared structure of the records allows for a (subjective) comparative perspective of policy progress in this field, across the monitored countries. The records were prepared based on information initially gathered during the period 2017-18 and complemented with contributions during the year 2019. Coverage of information added in 2019 and 2020, to reinforce the inventory up-to-datedness, is variable across countries and may not fully reflect developments during that year.
