International Competencies for Educational and Vocational Guidance Practitioners
(Approved by the IAEVG General Assembly, Berne, 2003
In 1999, the IAEVG General Assembly unanimously agreed to begin an initiative to create International Counsellor Qualification Standards. As the initiative unfolded, the advisory committee thought it was more in keeping with the mandate of the IAEVG to focus on educational and vocational guidance practitioners, rather than counsellors, especially seeing as counselling was only one of several functions performed by educational and vocational guidance practitioners. Furthermore, many Board members thought that IAEVG was not in a position to dictate international standards but it could declare what it thought were the competencies required in order for educational and vocational guidance practitioners to deliver quality services to clients. Therefore, the name of the initiative has changed to reflect these decisions.
