The Practitioner's toolkit for PES Building Career Guidance and Lifelong Learning presents concepts and tools for public employment services (PES) to assess needs and strengthen the career guidance and lifelong learning system and services.
PES have a major role to play in career guidance and lifelong learning, especially considering the increased demands for a skilled labour force in a constantly changing labour market.
The practitioner’s toolkit provides answers to the following questions, among others:
- Which partners can PES cooperate with?
- Which services should be offered to people at different stages of a lifecycle?
Moreover, it provides a template for drafting an action plan. It uses instruments like forecasting, partnership building, collaboration with employers, a multi-channelling approach, staff monitoring and capacity building.
