Project Type Innovationstransfer
Es besteht ein Zusammenhang in der Sache des lebenlangen lernens (life long learning)
und der lebenlangen berufsbegleitenden Beratung.
Viele Maßnahmen zur Berufsberatung, ob sie im einzelnen durch die EU finanziert werden oder nicht, richten sich hauptsächlich an Jugendliche oder an benachteiligte Personen. Es gibt aber einen Mangel an Initiativen die sich sowohl an die befristet, als auch an die unbefristet Beschäftigten wenden. Doch gerade diese Mitarbeiter benötigen
eine unterstützende Berufsberatung am Arbeitsplatz, um neue oder interessantere Beschäftigungsmöglichkeiten innerhalb oder außerhalb ihres Unternehmens zu finden.
Diese professionelle Berufsberatung am Arbeitsplatz sollte einen Arbeitnehmer das ganze Berufsleben begleiten und ihm so helfen, seine beruflichen Perspektiven
In Italy, like OECD countries, there is a constant link between the issue of life long learning and life long career guidance, so institution and government plan a lot of career guidance actions towards young people or disadvantaged workers , whilst there is a lack of initiatives adressed to temporary or open ended employees. These kind of worker need support too, in order to find out or to build up new opportunities and new incentive in a more and more complex labour market. According to this situation it has to change the aims and the final goals of career guidance or counselling or coaching actions in the workplace, from a passive support to an active promotion of the work. Career guidance is a life long support that help workers in development life-long professional project through the lifelong learning action.

GuidanceMerger showed that guidance can not be seen as activity carried out in isolation but must instead be seen as an integrated part of learning at the workplace.
