Guide 2.0 project

The BJC are delighted to be participating in yet another GUIDE EU project which aims to improve information, advice and guidance for young people especially those facing multiple and complex barriers to progression.

Project Overview

Good Guidance Stories 2.0 aims to improve educational and job-related Information Advice and Guidance (IAG) for young adults by developing learning material for IAG practitioners. Guide 2.0 is the third project of the Guide series and places special attention on the target group of young adults (18 –35 years), particularly those experiencing barriers to employment. Within Guide 2.0, seven new case studies will be developed with a focus on employability and the challenges of today’s labour market, through an international community of practice made up of 12 IAG practitioners and managers. Eight existing case studies from the two preceding projects focus on the competences and professionalism of IAG practitioners. The latter will be digitised, and all materials will be made available through an online-learning environment

Guide2.0 is shaped by and benefits from the effective practice and lessons learned from predecessor projects ‘Good Guidance Stories’ and ‘Good Guidance Stories Plus’ and builds upon this EU-wide theme of work by:

1. Forming a virtual Community of Practice to extend and develop IAG & Employability Practitioner Competence; facilitate personal and professional development through innovative peer-to-peer learning exchanges, and production of Case Studies as effective continuing professional development tools.

2. The Community of Practice drawing upon experience, insight and new ways of working to improve ‘the system’ and adapt to the new challenges brought about by the changing nature of society and the ‘world of work’.

3. Using Action Learning Sets as a method for increased innovation capability and learning innovation.

4. Setting out the value of the ‘Co-production Agenda’ to address the need for local application of effective practice models that are co-designed in partnership with young people.

5. Using Participatory Appraisal as a facilitated approach to enable sharing, development and analysis of the ‘current situation’ as experienced by young people themselves.

Guide2.0 will add to the existing portfolio of eight Case Studies by producing seven brand-new Case Studies: Personal Employability Skills, Self Management, Working Together and Communication, Creativity, Enterprise and Innovation, Flexible Frameworks for Learning and IAG, Long-term Joined-up Approach, and Re-thinking Roles, Relationships and Mindsets.
