Evidence-based policy and practice


The conscientious, explicit and judicious use of current evidence of what works best, and most cost-effectively, to inform lifelong guidance policy and practice.
More generally, any activity, intervention or way of working that has been designed on the basis of evidence that demonstrates the effectiveness of the particular approach (policy or practice) being used.


An example of using of an evidence-based policy would be where data on lifelong guidance service usage and potential demand are collected systematically at national level to develop evidence-based policies to target provision for different groups.
Although different, it can be seen as an adjunct to reflective practice.
