ELGPN Tools No. 4: Designing and Implementing Policies Related to Career Management Skills (CMS)

CAREER MANAGEMENT SKILLS (CMS) enable citizens to manage their individual life paths in educa-
tion, training and work across the lifespan. This ELGPN Tool is addressed to policy-makers who wish
to develop a comprehensive national guidance policy with the focus on the acquisition of CMS. This
need may arise in the light of the various lifelong guidance policies which exist in Europe, of closing
existing gaps in the national provision, and in meeting future approaches to lifelong guidance. This tool
is intended to support policy-makers in considering key questions in CMS-related policies by sharing
insights, good practices and conclusions across the ELGPN member-countries.

The ELGPN represents a major development in support of national lifelong guidance policy develop-
ment in Europe. It currently has 30 member countries (AT, BE, BG, CY, CZ, DE, DK, EE, EL, ES, FI, FR,
HR, HU, IE, IS, IT, LV, LT, LU, MT, NL, NO, PL, PT, RO, RS, SE, SI, and SK), with CH as an observer.
The participating countries designate their representatives in the Network, and are encouraged to in-
clude both governmental and non-governmental representatives. As a Member-State-driven network,
the ELGPN represents an innovative form of the Open Method of Co-ordination within the European
Union (EU).
