International consultancy

In 2004, our Professor Tony Watts co-authored the seminal OECD Report, which provided the platform for much research and consultancy on international policy and practice relating to career support.  In 2008 we became the International Centre for Guidance Studies to reflect the breadth of research, consultancy and partnerships that we have developed across the world. Recent international work includes providing consultancy in Sri Lanka, Croatia, Kosovo, Abu Dhabi, Canada, Australia, China, and Malaysia. We also have experience in evaluating European projects and have produced concept notes for the European Lifelong Guidance Policy Network (ELGPN). The researchers at iCeGS have also contributed to a number of Erasmus funded projects with European partners from Italy, Greece, Spain, The Czech Republic, Denmark, Slovakia, Romania, The Netherlands and Germany
