CEDEFOP Flash, n3 Mar 1990
This document reports on a conference centered around three topics: vocational guidance in the Member States of the European Community (EC), the "Europeanization" of vocational guidance, and approaches to cross-frontier vocational guidance. Among the recommendations of the conference participants are the following: the tasks of vocational guidance for young people and adults should be taken into account in all relevant EC programs; regular meetings of senior staff of agencies responsible for the vocational guidance of young people and adults should be held; exchanges of ideas and reciprocal visits by practitioners are encouraged; cooperative agreements on the continuing training of counselors should be concluded; funds should be provided for projects, studies, and conferences; and agreements should be concluded on support for database systems and publications, such as a European guidance handbook, to help vocational guidance staff in their cross-frontier guidance work. A 12-item bibliography is included in the document. (CML)
