Europe/Lifelong Guidance

NCGE Opinions Films

Following NCGE’s successful week of events in March 2013, on the theme of ‘Building the Evidence Base’, we spoke to conference delegates and international experts to discover their opinions on what is the most critical aspect of Lifelong Guidance: Building the Evidence Base. The result has been the production of one introductory and 11 short opinion films which have great relevance to guidance in Ireland and Europe today. These films can be viewed here.


NCGE Research Code of Ethics

NCGE takes pride in the quality of the research it has undertaken both in-house and through commissioned work. The publication of NCGE's Research Code of Ethics provides an articulation of the values and principles underlying the Centre's investigative methodologies.


The Youth Guarantee and Lifelong Guidance

High levels of youth unemployment, under-employment, early school-leaving and social/economic inactivity of young Europeans have developed into a deep and burning issue during the last five years. This provides a strong challenge to the European social values which underpin the European Social Model and cohesion policies. The political leaders of the European Union have accordingly agreed a new European initiative for young people known as the Youth Guarantee Initiative (YGI).
