This toolkit was developed by the ACA PES project as a response to limited detailing of employment guidance, and its implementation and practice in community-based employment services.
It is aimed at practitioners and organisations delivering employment guidance services to people experiencing unemployment, including those who are first time job seekers, part-time workers, long term unemployed (LTU) or who find themselves at career transition-points between education/training and work, or between jobs.
The toolkit provides a set of guidelines and options to support those delivering and implementing services appropriate for a range of job seekers, job changers and in particular those more distant from the labour market.
The content has been informed primarily by best practice demonstrated by practitioners working in the LES, through the ACA PES project and other research, and by international best practice models and academic studies.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme under the Marie-Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement no. 841477.
