No Dead Ends – Guidance Supporting All the Way


13-16 February 2022 | Jyväskylä, Finland

How to support learning and employment throughout the growing up of young people? Join the cross-sectoral seminar to see good practices of guidance and support of pupils, students and young people throughout their development and see its possibilities.

Themes and goals of the event

The seminar's programme brings together different aspects of guidance. International high-quality research reminds us of the importance of career guidance in lifelong learning and presents the development of guidance services internationally.

The programme also highlights the high-quality practices of formal and non-formal guidance operating in Finland, from basic education to higher education, not forgetting the familiarization with working life and working life services. The aim of the seminar is to create open interaction and discussion and, last but not least, to provide a platform for building new networks.

Youth workers, youth information workers and workers in relevant NGOs can also see examples on how non-formal sector can support the formal sector in the guidance work.

When and where?

The seminar will take place in Jyväskylä, Finland, on 13. – 16.2.2022.

The seminar venue is Hotel Laajavuori in Jyväskylä

Target group

Professionals interested in life-long guidance who work closely with guidance and counselling of pupils, students and young people on youth sector.

Youth sector means working directly with young people outside the formal education institutions, on young people's free time. The participants are expected to present an organisation organising activities for youth and for whom the idea of guidance and councelling is relevant.

Applicants with great personal interest, but no relevant link to actual youth work are not encouraged to apply. The activity aims for professional development, not self-development for self-interest.

N.B. This call is open only for actors of the youth field. Professionals on school sector, vocational education, higher education and adult education should apply through the SALTO Education and Training website https://salto-et.net/events/
