Our final look this year is the Southern Hemisphere, and Africa in particular.
One of the most inspiring presentations given at the International Symposium in Norway last June was:
The Challenges of Meeting Everyone’s Needs
by Letshego Mokeki, Director, Career Development Services Programmes, Department of Higher Education and Training, South-Africa. The challenges are immense and the responses are multi-faceted. Well worth your while to read his PPTs.
Recently, the “African Continental Free Trade Area Agreement” has been ratified and it is hoped that it will provide some stimuli for social and economic cooperation between countries in Africa, including for the career guidance policy field. The challenges for labour market demand and supply for Rwanda and the role of career guidance in this are described in this briefing.
An East Africa Career Development Association has been established and moves are afoot to establish a similar association for West Africa. For more information, firstname.lastname@example.org
The ICCDPP Board wishes you all a great end of year holiday and the very best for 2020.
