The week is planned as part of Estonia’s Presidency of the Council of the European Union in the second semester of 2017. The overall theme will be innovative information and communication technologies (ICT) and future cooperation in the field of lifelong guidance. The aim is to:
share innovative ICT practices;
disseminate tools and initiatives to support the development of lifelong guidance ICT capacity;
and facilitate future cooperation at European level.
The programme will integrate the most relevant events on lifelong guidance at European level, including a thematic EU Presidency conference, the first meeting of Cedefop’s expert group in guidance, CareersNet, and a Euroguidance meeting.
Around 200 participants involved in European, national and regional lifelong guidance policy and practice will attend the 7th EU Presidency conference on lifelong guidance policy, co-organised by the Estonian Ministry of Education and Research, Cedefop and Foundation Innove. During the conference Cedefop will offer workshops to pilot and test its upcoming tools for guidance practitioners and careers service managers, including a handbook on transferability of practices, a practitioners’ toolkit and training modules.
