The Elontila research project examines the state of lifelong guidance in Finland.
Lifelong guidance to support education, employment, career and life planning affects the whole population. The aim of the Elontila evaluation study is to provide a systematic picture of the overall information, counselling and guidance services of Finnish lifelong guidance and to assess its functionality: availability, quality, results and effectiveness.
As part of the evaluation research project, a quality framework for lifelong guidance will be developed, which will allow the field of lifelong guidance to be interpreted, analysed and developed in a multidisciplinary way at different levels of activity. The quality framework will include proposals for common national monitoring and evaluation tools for lifelong guidance across sectors to support local and national knowledge management and lifelong guidance work. The quality framework is prepared by Haaga-Helia.
The project is coordinated by the University of Helsinki, while the University of Jyväskylä, Häme and Haaga-Helia Universities of Applied Sciences and the Otus Foundation are involved in the implementation. The project is commissioned by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment. The project will be carried out with the funding of the EU Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF).
