Career education or guidance programs vary in their nature and purpose; each operates in a different context, time and space. Through the use of a synthetic and holistic approach Evaluating Career Education and Guidance offers the ECCOES framework for judging the merit or worth of career programs, policies, services or initiatives.

This framework on evaluation emphasises the perspectives of key stakeholders in any evaluation. It deals with fundamental issues such as the ethics of a program, the cost-benefits of a service and the extent of coverage of any new initiative. Readers are shown the importance of determining whether a program achieves its objectives and its relative effectiveness.

Evaluating Career Education and Guidanceoffers a complete basis for evaluation judgements and decisions. It is an invaluable guide for researchers and policy makers who needs to decide about the merit or worth of career programs or services, and provides as a useful reference and guide for anyone who is required to evaluate a career initiative.
