Quality in Guidance for Adults.
Further Education Unit, London (England).
Individuals have increasingly recognized the role that guidance for learning and work can play in encouraging adults to achieve their educational and personal goals. This pack of materials was designed to help those who offer guidance to adults and take a pro-active approach to developing quality assurance. These seven booklets are intended for use by, among others, guidance practitioners in career and educational services; managers with a responsibility for guidance or quality in Training and Enterprise Councils (TEC); and members of guidance agency steering groups and networks. Booklet One provides an introduction to the pack along with an explanation of terms and acronyms. The second booklet explains the quality systems referred to in this series. Sections 3 and 4 offer professionals points to consider when choosing a guidance system and when implementing a strategy. Also an example is provided of a guidance quality system that has been extensively tested and adapted. In booklet five, the link between quality standards, occupational competence and training are explored. In the sixth folder, six examples of implementing quality systems in guidance settings are profiled. The final section lists published resources on guidance systems. (RJM)
