The Guidance in the Workplace Transfer of Innovation project: 1 November 2007 - 31 October 2009.
Our project was a transfer of innovation project which transferred learning about the different ways of offering advice and guidance to those in employment. This meant advice and guidance which was integrated into the workplace. The partners undertook this in different ways including liaising directly with employers, trade union representatives, training managers and human resource managers.
Three main assumptions were taken into account before the start of the project:
- That guidance can make a major contribution to the development of lifelong learning for those within employment by encouraging those in employment to take up learning opportunities
- That guidance is not always easily accessible to those in employment as for example those who are unemployed
- For advice and guidance to make a contribution to the development of lifelong learning within employment, it is essential that advice and guidance is not provided in isolation
