Towards a Personal Guidance Base. A Project Report.
Miller, John; And Others
This report focuses on the organization of guidance provision through a Personal Guidance Base for low achievers aged 16 to 18. An introduction outlines the background to the concept of a local Personal Guidance Base to which young people can turn as they move from school to adult and working life, and identifies its main elements. Opportunities for low achievers aged 16 to 18 are reviewed, and the role of guidance as mediation between the individual and the variety of opportunities open to the individual is examined. A discussion of guidance provides a definition, explores the kinds of activities it may involve, and indicates some of the agencies and individuals who may offer it to young people. Four possible strategies are then explored for implementing within a locality the main features of a Personal Guidance Base. The role that further education colleges might play in relation to each of these four strategies is discussed, and application of similar Personal Guidance Base strategies within further education colleges themselves is examined. The report concludes by reflecting on the processes of change implied by the attempt to implement a Personal Guidance Base. (YLB)
