Resources for guidance professionals working with refugees

Career guidance professionals and services across Europe have long been supporting and advocating for migrants and refugees to gain new perspectives in education and on the labor market, after critical  disruption to people’s careers and educational pathways. The current war against Ukraine is not only an attack on innocent people; it is also an attack on the education, society and institutions of the country.

The Euroguidance network would like to point out a few articles, resources and tools that might be of help to the guidance community in supporting the newly arrived – the list will be continuously updated.
