The annual meeting of CareersNet independent national experts convened again remotely on October 18 and 19 (1.5 days). This was the second annual meeting for new members joining in 2021, and gave extra space for follow up on work in progress started last year.
Following tradition, the event included thematic presentations, targeted group policy discussions, and workshop activities. These were designed to strive toward specific outcomes in relation to knowledge and evidence building for policy, and awareness raising about quality lifelong guidance and career development systems and practices, through network peer learning and exchange, and active collaboration on priority, ad hoc, and analytical activities.
The first plenary session was dedicated to country presentations from Czechia by invited national and regional stakeholders who provided thematic input on Continuity and discontinuity in lifelong guidance and career development policy at the national and regional level comparing the labour market/employment and education and training sectors in two regions.
Following group discussions on the country theme, network sessions were dedicated to past, ongoing, and future activities including:
- discussing the status of Inventory of lifelong guidance systems and practices updates for 2022
- core member feedback on the first working group’s progress on updating the ELGPN 2015 guidelines on policy and system development
- continuing efforts by a working group on the feasibility of developing an adaptable draft template for mapping each lifelong guidance system; and
- introducing a potential call for member papers on the role of LLG in supporting economic, social, and environmental sustainability
This meeting had restricted participation.
