Are resources available for effectively monitoring and improving guidance services that are fit for these purposes, and for evaluating outcomes and impacts at different levels? Are systems changing to meet evolving demands from clients, to enable a more diverse set of beneficiaries and to reach target groups – are integrated policy approaches and services becoming the norm? Can the costs and investments in supporting career pathways for adults be estimated? What are the important drivers having an impact on the shape of monitoring and evaluation processes in career guidance today? Which approaches are currently used and which data is collected and used? Can a common set of minimum standards be developed for all member states?
Through taking stock of the state of the art and existing models, indicators and approaches to monitoring and evaluation in career guidance, and in looking ahead to the future in the European context, this event has three main aims:
- To present selected results of Cedefop’s study on support and incentives to learning and careers (Lot 1): monitoring and evaluation of career guidance and career development services. This includes presentation of research papers by external expert teams, findings from a pilot study conducted in Austria in 2021, and several illustrative cases from other European countries;
- To discuss a proposed monitoring and evaluation framework, and common European indicators, with invited participants including guidance experts and national providers of guidance services, and other key stakeholders;
- To exchange and generate new knowledge for building the evidence base on monitoring and evaluation in career guidance, including the results of career guidance and career development activities.
