The annual meeting of CareersNet independent national experts will convene again remotely on October 18 and 19 (1.5 days). This will be the second annual meeting for new members joining in 2021, and will give extra space for follow up on work in progress started last year.

Following tradition, the event will include thematic presentations, targeted group policy discussions, and workshop activities. These are 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.

One plenary session is dedicated to country presentations from Czechia by invited national and regional stakeholders who will provide 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:

“Lifelong guidance policy making is specific to each country. Continuity or the changes in the priorities set at national level in the CZ strategic documents determine lifelong guidance policy making on the national level and influence it in the regions. The CZ National guidance forum is one of the key national stakeholders. Forum members are engaged in information transfer from the national level to the regions. Similarities and differences at regional level in lifelong guidance policy making will be illustrated through the example of two CZ regions.”

Following group discussions on the country theme, dedicated network sessions are dedicated to past, ongoing, and future activities including:

  • discussing the status of Inventory of lifelong guidance systems and practices updates for 2022
  • 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
  • the results of a short ad hoc activity supported by the advisory group on lifelong guidance during the unfolding Ukrainian crisis; and
  • introducing a call for member papers on the role of LLG in supporting economic, social, and environmental sustainability
