Under the service coordination and research work of the Community-Based Team, the publication of the Practice Guidelines will include the intervention strategies, practice experiences and wisdom developed by frontline practitioners of the District Service Teams over the course. Fellow workers may take the Guidelines as a practical reference for designing community-based career and life planning services to support young people not in education, employment or training (NEET).
In addition to the crucial concepts, theories, and intervention frameworks related to career and life planning, the focus of each Guidelines will be on one of the key artefacts/special targeted groups as follows:
As a new form of curriculum vitae, CV360® is built on the concept of ‘Expanded Notion of Work’ (ENOW). The User Guidelines will elaborate the core ideas and framework of CV360®, support with intervention strategies and related tools to help youth workers in their career and life guidance work.
The Workplace Learning Programme of CLAP emphasize the shared value between different stakeholders, the Guidelines will introduce the key features of our workplace learning activities, and demonstrate how to work with the corporate partners in defining job positions with VASK ideas. It includes detailed proposal templates and intervention tools, aims to enhance the effectiveness of young people’s experiential learning and corporate partners’ talent-matching strategies.
Interest activities can inspire young people to explore their VASK and identity, the Guidelines will provide a practical reference to youth workers about how to design the interest-based interventions in a career and life planning perspective, for supporting young people’s development of life aspirations.
CLAP’s services have covered different groups of young people with specific needs/identities, including ethnic minorities, young mothers, social withdrawn, high risk school dropout, and special education needs (SEN). The Guidelines will illustrate the key CLP needs of these special targeted groups, and provide effective interventions with case study to youth workers for reference.

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.
