EAF Accreditation Framework for the European Career Guidance Practitioners at a Glance.
"In many European countries the training of careers guidance practitioners is not formally established and based mostly on non formal and informal learning; a comprehensive system of qualification is lacking; where existing, qualifications are not comparable between different countries. The development and implementation and adoption at European level of a framework for accrediting people delivering career guidance such EAF Accreditation Framework for the European Career Guidance Practitioners (EAF) could substantially contribute to the improving of the sector. Accreditation scope is threefold. First, accreditation of practitioners is a tool for internal quality assurance in organizations that employ them. Secondly, it is a tool for reassuring users and financers (public authorities) on quality of career guidance delivery. Last but not least, accreditation allows practitioners to assess their capabilities and to identify directions for improvement and training, and helps to rise their status distinguishing them by other not accredited colleagues." This presentation was held at the 2009 conference of the International Association for Educational and Vocational Guidance (IAEVG) in Finland. [Abstract: Author's information].
