The Blueprint for Life/Work Designs.
Jarvis, Phil; Richardt, Joan
The "Blueprint" is a common framework of career development competencies that students and adults anywhere in Canada or the United States need to master in order to be successful and self-reliant in planning and managing their careers in a rapidly changing, knowledge-age labor market. A practical resource designed for career professionals, the Blueprint emerged from a partnership project of Canada's National Life/Work Centre, Human Resources Development Canada, and the Canada Career Information Partnership. It is based on work done by the U. S. National Occupational Information Coordinating Committee to develop the "National Career Development Guidelines K-Adult Handbook." These guidelines have been undergoing development, implementation, evaluation, and enhancement since 1988. Most U. S. states have adopted and implemented these guidelines. The Blueprint is an adaptation of these guidelines for Canada. This paper describes the 550-page publication. (EV/MKA)
