This report, published by the OECD, scopes out initiatives in the area of career guidance for adults in OECD countries, recommending how to strengthen adult career guidance systems in terms of coverage and inclusiveness, service delivery, quality and impact, and governance and funding. The findings of the report build on the information collected through the 2020 Survey of Career Guidance for Adults, an online survey of adults’ experience with career guidance. The report is part of a series which examines how countries measure changing skills' needs and how they develop skills that respond to labour market needs.

The report is divided into four parts, where the first one focuses on finding of the OECD Survey of Career Guidance for Adults; the second chapter maps the providers of career guidance, while the third one provides the policy recommendations for improving the quality and impact of career guidance services; and the final chapter describes how OECD countries coordinate stakeholders involved in governing career guidance.
