Guide2 is a complex and ambitious project with five foundational areas of work generated by partners from six countries. Project implementation is scheduled over a period of 26-months to enable the testing and production of high quality products/intellectual outputs and results, as follows:
- Methodological Concept: comprising a programme of systematic enquiry and validation of methods applied to IAG/career guidance, in order to capture, in each partner country, effective practice examples of flexible frameworks for provision of IAG, including that provided through partnership and joined-up working, and good examples of how young adults are best engaged as active participants in the process of transforming IAG practice and provision.
- Blended Learning Curriculum: review of the existing Methdological and Recommendation Guides produced by Guide2’s predecessor project in light of the results of IO1, and the digitization of these Guides, along with the existing Case Studies, Teaching Notes and Curricula as an online learning resource.
