How can guidance contribute to the promotion of individual wellbeing? How are lifelong learning and guidance strategies created and carried out in organizations and regions? How can the quality and resource efficiency of guidance be developed through evaluation?
The Networked Guidance Service Provision (NEGSEP) Model developed at the Finnish Institute for Educational Research (FIER) provides answers to these questions. It introduces to international readers one Finnish way of perceiving the diversity of guidance services.
The model can be used to describe the operational levels of guidance and to analyze the present state of guidance services produced by organizations regionally and nationally. Furthermore, the model can serve as a quality manual in the evaluation and development of coherent guidance services.
