The study is issued in the context of the political priority given at European level to career guidance, due to its contribution to the achievement of four public policy goals:
These goals are considered fundamental in the establishment of a competitive and dynamic knowledge society in Europe. In this context, the assurance of high quality life-long guidance is considered as a prerequisite, together with the development of specific qualitative and quantitative data as "indicators". The ultimate objective is the evaluation of guidance services in each country and the promotion of the dialogue at European level.
