Determining the Need for Vocational Counselling among Different Target Groups of Young People under 28 Years of Age in the European Community. Young People in Denmark and Their Need for Guidance. National Report.
A study examined the vocational guidance services available to youth in Denmark. The study focused on the following: use of existing vocational guidance services (including services available through basic general education, the Youth Guidance Scheme, secondary education, vocational training, and higher education and through Denmark's Public Employment Service and Unemployment Insurance Funds) by Denmark's youth; potential problem areas in existing vocational guidance services; and strategies for remedying those problems. It was discovered that young Danes have good access to and make substantial use of the various guidance schemes existing in and around Denmark's education and labor market services systems. The special vocational guidance needs of chronically unemployed youths and youths who either drop out of school or change course in Denmark's education system were examined in depth, and recommendations for improving the following aspects of vocational guidance services available to Denmark's youth were formulated: organization, methods, content, staff training, resources, and internationalization.
