Welcome to NICEC’s new website! Whilst the content is substantially the same as before, we hope that it is easier to navigate around the site and visitors find the design attractive. A significant change is that there is now just one private area for Fellows and Members which provides access to back copies of the NICEC Journal and materials from NICEC Seminars and Network Meetings.
If you are NICEC Felow or Member and need information or a reminder of your password for the private area of the website please contact email@example.com
Seminars are free to Fellows and Members. Others can attend for a modest fee. Everyone wishing to come to an event should book with Stephen McNair at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We now have online access to the NICEC Journal for Fellows, Members and subscribers. See the Journal page for details.

- Tony Watts Reader Professor Tony Watts is a pre-eminent figure in the field of career guidance. He retired in late 2014 after a 50 year career in the field. This single volume is dedicated to anthologising his work in a way that is accessible to students, policy makers, researchers and practitioners and contains Watts’ most enduring and key writings about career guidance.
NICEC International Fellow John McCarthy of the ICCDPP (http://iccdpp.org/) lets us know that new guidelines for policies and systems for lifelong guidance have been published by the European Lifelong Guidance Policy Network (ELGPN).
- New European Guidelines for Policies and Systems for Lifelong Guidance Published!
The aim of these guidelines is to provide advice to policy makers in the education and employment sectors on how to develop policies for lifelong guidance and on how to organise career guidance services for the general population and for different groups in society.
The guidelines cover a range of issues that are common to all sectors and services: strategic leadership, access, funding, ICT, career management skills, careers information, quality assurance, evidence collection, and the training and qualifications of guidance practitioners.
They also provide separate policy advice for services for each of the following target groups: school pupils, VET participants, higher education students, adult learners, employed and unemployed persons, older adults, young people at risk, and disadvantaged groups in society.
