4.11.2014 -

global IAEVG/ ELGPN/ ICCDPP webinar

Den Mitschnitt können Sie sich hier anhören:

Moderation: Phil Jarvis (Canada) and Raimo Vuorinen (Finland)

The topic will be introduced by Prof Tony Watts. During his long and distinguished career, Tony has lectured in over sixty countries, and has carried out a number of comparative studies of guidance systems around the world, as well as acting as consultant to several transnational action projects.

In this final webinar before his impending retirement, Prof Watts will reflect his work and outline the evolution of the concept of lifelong career development (or lifelong guidance) systems, strategies and policies, in Europe and elsewhere. He will describe current efforts to establish such systems in two pivotally important non-Western countries: South Africa and Saudi Arabia. Finally, he will discuss the complexities of such efforts, the possible models they can adopt, and the importance of international sharing and reflection.

Following Prof Watt’s presentation two internationally-recognized career guidance leaders - Lynne Bezanson (Canada), John McCarthy (ICCDPP) - will respond, focusing on:
•    What should we prioritize in a future lifelong guidance policy agenda?
•    Is there a need for greater international co-ordination in this area?
