The National Centre for Guidance in Education (NCGE) commissioned Dr. Deirdre Hughes OBE (Director) and Trevor Carson (Senior Associate) to co-facilitate two thematic Transnational Co-operation Activity (TCA) seminars and to prepare a report on the process and outcomes. This brought together 47 participants from thirteen countries across Europe – Austria, Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, French Speaking Belgium, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Norway, Poland, Spain and Sweden to discuss and review the development of evidence-based practice in guidance services in schools.
Participants included: policymakers, school management representatives, guidance practitioners, school inspectors, training providers and academic researchers. UK lifelong guidance specialists co-facilitated the seminar.
The report presents a robust framework for data gathering as part of the development of evidence-based practice in guidance services in schools. The content and findings have emerged from the ‘Thematic Seminar Series’ held in Dublin, Ireland on 7th – 8th September 2017 (Part One) and 22nd – 23rd February 2018 (Part Two). A Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) was used to support communication between and after meetings to facilitate dialogue and the exchange of learning resources.
NGCE is an agency of the Department of Education and Skills in Ireland. They submitted a proposal to the Irish National Agency to organise the Transnational Co-operation Activity (TCA) funded under the EU Erasmus+ Programme. The National Agency engaged NCGE to host and organise the TCA on the development of evidence-based practice in guidance services in schools. This work was lead by Linda Darbey at the NGCE.
