          Norwegian quality framework for career guidance

          The Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research
          has commissioned SkillsNorway to develop a national
          quality framework for career guidance. The goal is to
          develop quality standards that are accepted and
          recognised by the guidance field, teachers, PES
          employees and of course, the clients.The framework
          will be a useful tool for both professional counsellors
          and others who are involved in educational or
          vocational training and guidance. One challenge is to
          detect where guidance takes place, because it is often
          hidden in other services. The latest developments on
          guidance in Norway have focused on creating a
          holistic and systemic guidance structure, and a part of
          that is to identify quality and professional ethical
          guidelines. Four different working groups have been
                                                                 Tonje F. Gravaas (SkillsNorway), Kjell Helge Kleppestø (Director
