In light of the growing negative impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on national labour markets and people’s lives and livelihoods, the role of career guidance has become ever more important to individuals, families, communities, the workforce, employers and society.

Based on a flash joint international survey – carried out from June to August 2020 – this report provides a snapshot of how career guidance policies, systems and services were adapting and coping, following the declaration of the Covid-19 pandemic in March 2020.

The survey and report are a joint initiative of several organisations: the European Centre for Development of Vocational Training (Cedefop), the European Commission, the European Training Foundation (ETF), the International Centre for Career Development and Public Policy (ICCDPP), the International Labour Organisation (ILO), the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
