Euroguidance network collects and publishes information on the results of projects, innovative methods and examples of good practice in the field of lifelong career guidance. It enables the exchange of information on education systems in Europe, opportunities for international mobility, as well as European initiatives and programmes in the areas of education, career guidance and mobility.
In 2013, the Tempus Foundation became the host of the National Euroguidance Centre of the European Network to Support Guidance and Counselling. At the time, the network was a part of the Lifelong Learning Programme, and from 2014 it is a part of the Erasmus+ programme. Euroguidance centres exist in thirty-four European countries.
In cooperation with other national centres, the Euroguidance Centre in Serbia supports networking of career practitioners and advisors in the field of career guidance and counselling, by organising seminars, training programmes and study visits at national and international level.
It promotes cooperation among all stakeholders in the field of career guidance and counselling at the national level. In addition, the Euroguidance Centre emphasises the particular importance of promoting the development of the European dimension in the national systems of career guidance and counselling through close cooperation with other relevant European networks, such was the European Lifelong Guidance Policy Network (ELGPN) and now is CareersNet.
One of the important tasks of the Euroguidance network is to publish the content and update the Database of Learning Opportunities and Qualification in Europe, where it updates information on education systems in Europe, costs of living, housing during the studies, scholarships and other useful information related to mobility and exchange programmes, available scholarships, etc.
The primary target group of the Euroguidance centre are practitioners in the field of career guidance and counselling, including career advisors, policymakers at the national and local level, educators and psychologists, teachers and educational institutions that implement programmes of career guidance and counselling.
Services of the Euroguidance Centre can also be used by all interested students, pupils, teachers, as well as employed or unemployed persons. In this way, through information provided by Euroguidance network, they can find education or training programmes in Europe, useful information about career guidance and counselling services within the country and education systems in other European countries.
