The National Forum on Guidance provides an informal communication and cooperation facility for those involved in the provision of guidance and the development and support of guidance practitioners and services.
Each Fora also attempts to promote the expansion of the ‘Guidance Community’ by involving sector representation not traditionally perceived as being ‘guidance impacting’. Following the Forum a ‘report of discussions’ will be produced, published here and disseminated to participants and the wider guidance community.
Details pertaining to the latest Forum are below.
