The Inter-Agency Career Guidance Working Group is organizing the first Global Careers Month, between 8 November and 13 December. During this period, the international agencies will promote a series of global and regional events, in partnership with national and regional and global association associations operating around career development for both young people and adults.
Career guidance is becoming increasingly important to enable efforts to support access to decent work and livelihoods. Its role in ensuring labour market relevant skilling and re-skilling efforts as well as promoting professional mobility, will be a key factor during the process of economic recovery. Moreover, career guidance is increasingly important to the development of effective lifelong learning policies and a hallmark of quality in establishing incentives to training.
The objectives of the Global Careers Month are to:
- Raise awareness about the role and importance of effective career guidance to enable access to decent work, careers, and support growth efforts during economic recovery;
- Identify shared challenges to the development of career guidance systems as well local specificities linked to local contexts;
- Showcase high quality, as well as innovative solutions to promote career development support in diverse contexts and for learners at different stages in their educational and career pathways; and,
- Disseminate research undertaken by the collaborating agencies on the design and delivery of effective career guidance
Join us in this month-long celebration and reflection!
