Under the coordination and research work of the Community-Based Team, the publication of the Good Practice Manual will include the intervention strategies, practice experience, and practice wisdom developed by frontline practitioners of the five District Service Teams over the course. Fellow workers may take the Manual as a reference when they provide career and life planning services to young people not in education, employment or training (NEET) or other youth with specific service needs.
The Manual contains the crucial concepts, theories, and intervention frameworks related to career and life planning, practical guidelines on community-based intervention, instructions on helping youth with specific service needs to actualize their career and life planning, as well as some other useful suggestions on the collaboration with various stakeholders.
The ENOW-VASK card sort is designed to encourage young people to review their Expanded Notion of Work (ENOW) experiences and identify their own Values, Attitudes, Skills and Knowledge (VASK), which is especially crucial when they are in the “Self-understanding” stage of the programme. Youth workers can use the card sort as an interactive game to initiate conversation with young people about career and life planning. The illustrations and layout of the card sort match the ENOW-VASK reference checklists. The card sort is useful when counselling young people as it allows them to express their personal experiences and strengths more easily, and helps them build up their CV in the form of CV360® in an effective way.
