Scottish Review of Employment and Skills 2011
By iccdppadm @ 5:05 AM :: 10763 Views :: 12 Comments :: :: Career Development, Guidance for Young People at Risk, Guidance for Unemployed Adults, Guidance for Older Adults, Guidance for Disadvantaged Groups, United Kingdom, Expanding Access to Guidance, Co-ordination and Leadership
The employment and skills systems need to work together to support individuals into employment with the skills to progress, and in turn, to provide the skills employers demand through responsive workforce development. The Skills for Scotland Strategy and its subsequent refresh in 2010 encourages the integration of employment and skills services to facilitate the journey individuals make from long term unemployment to sustained employment and in work progression. A pilot to match employment services with career guidance services was rolled out through all Skills Development Scotland and Jobcentre Plus public offices in Scotland and is now operational in all areas. However, integration of employment and skills services has not yet been achieved systemically in Scotland. What has occurred is joint working at a local level, driven by the ambition to deliver better outcomes for customers, which often takes place despite inflexibilities of the systems.

This report recommends 4 areas for action:
-coherent information: collection, sharing, understanding, and usage
-collaboration between partners: more inclusive partnership arrangements, identify and work towards common goals
-customer focus: involvement in design, delivery and evaluation of services
-progression: support sustainable employment and progression in work; explore a careers cluster approach to support individual progression at local level.

Proposed Performance Measures and State Responses: Analysis and Next Steps
By iccdppadm @ 8:50 PM :: 15436 Views :: 12 Comments :: :: Guidance for Young People at Risk, Guidance for Unemployed Adults, Guidance for Older Adults, Guidance for Disadvantaged Groups, Assessing Effectiveness, Americas, USA

This report (2004) by Chris T King and Sarah Looney of the Ray Marshall Centre of UTA contains a discussion of 30 workforce development performance measures generated by several US states for 7 areas of interest to policy and program leaders and rated by them for usefulness.

The seven areas are: outcomes for employers and the economy; labour market outcomes for program participants; social welfare outcomes; customer satisfaction; skills gains; return on investment; and sub-group and comparative information. A One-Stop Career Centre was one of the features of services examined in this context.

In their review of the measures, the authors used the following lenses: rationale; feasibility; accuracy; validity; systems focus; time frames; and definitions.

While career development services were only one of the program features examined, the lenses used by the authors can be of value to policy makers/developers, delivery service managers, researchers, and leaders of the career guidance community in the search for meaningful policy performance indicators.

PROPOSED APPROACHES TO WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT PERFORMANCE MEASURES
By iccdppadm @ 8:35 PM :: 17232 Views :: 8 Comments :: :: Public Policy, Guidance for Young People at Risk, Guidance for Unemployed Adults, Guidance for Older Adults, Guidance for Disadvantaged Groups, Assessing Effectiveness, Americas, USA

This policy brief (2005) by Sarah Looney and Chris T King provides backround to the movement to develop a standard set of performance measures for publicly funded programmes that comprise the US workforce development system. It also reviews two prominent US proposals: common measures proposed by the Office of Management and Budget , and the measures of the Integrated Performance Information Project.

While not specifically dealing with the performance indicators for career guidance/development services and programmes, the content of the policy brief has pertinence for such discussions in the USA and beyond.

Lifelong Learning and Securing Career Paths: Proceedings of EU Presidency Conference Nov 2008
By iccdppadm @ 5:40 AM :: 15559 Views :: 28 Comments :: :: Career Development, Guidance for Unemployed Adults, Guidance for Employed Adults, Guidance for Older Adults, Guidance for Disadvantaged Groups, Co-ordination and Leadership, European Commission (EC), EU, Expanding Access to Guidance

This publication is a summary of the proceedings of a French Presidency of the EU conference supported by the European Commission's Directorates for Education and for Employment. The conference aimed to identify the challenges, to set out common findings, and to outline measures taken to make lifelong learning more effective. Lifelong learning was seen as at the heart of the flexicurity principle.

As you will see from the proceedings, most of the time was devoted to issues concerning initial and continuing vocational training: access by SMEs, by older, disabled, migrant, unskilled; employer or employee led;  partnerships, motivation; costs and benefits.

The importance of career guidance and counselling was underlined by Heléne Clark, director of the EC's DG for Education, and was also underlined in the French Secretary of State for Employment's discourse on training system reform.

Social Inclusion: Origins, Concepts and Key Themes published by the Australian Government
By iccdppadm @ 8:59 AM :: 15714 Views :: 28 Comments :: :: Public Policy, Guidance in Schools and Training, Guidance for Young People at Risk, Guidance for Unemployed Adults, Guidance for Disadvantaged Groups, Australia, Expanding Access to Guidance

This 2008 report describes some of the definitional, conceptual and historical foundations of the concept of social inclusion. It summarises the strengths and limitations of Australian and international approaches to the topic so far, and sketches some of the scope of exclusion in terms of locational disadvantage, intergenerational disadvantage, children at risk, child poverty and jobless families, employment, mental health, disability and homelessness. It also discusses the relational dimension of exclusion. The report provides elements of policy approaches to move from exclusion to inclusion.

Career guidance is often used as part of multidimensional strategies to address exclusion issues; indeed in its origins it was part of a social reform movement. In order to see where it may or can play a role, this report is essential background reading.

Enhancing European Cooperation in VET: the Bordeaux Communique 2008
By iccdppadm @ 12:47 PM :: 14241 Views :: 25 Comments :: :: Public Policy, Guidance in Schools and Training, Guidance for Unemployed Adults, Guidance for Employed Adults, Guidance for Older Adults, European Union (EU), European Commission (EC), Expanding Access to Guidance, Co-ordination and Leadership

The ministers for VET of the European Union , the European Social Partners and the European Commission met in Bordeaux, France under the French Presidency of the EU in 2008 to review priorities and strategies in European cooperation in VET. The outcome of their discussions is known as the Bordeaux Communique.

The Communique outlines the process of cooperation since 2002, describes the key EU instruments created and their impact on national policies. It sets out a new strategic vision for 2008-2010, especially the challenges of globalisation. The Communique proposes four priority areas for future action:

  • national implementation of cooperation instruments and agreements
  • improving the quality and attractiveness of VET
  • improving links between VET and the labour market
  • strengthening European cooperation arrangements.

The Communique makes very explicit the centrality of the provision of career guidance to VET and CVET policies for young people and adults.

It calls for:

  • facilitating access to information and lifelong guidance and counselling services through the successful implementation of the 2008 Council Resolution on Lifelong Guidance (which may be found elsewhere on this web site)
  • action to be taken to promote guidance systems which help young people and adults to cope better with transitions within education and training and all along their career paths
  • improve guidance and counselling services to ease transition from training to employment.
