A crucial tool to support such individuals is career guidance and counselling, seen from a lifelong learning perspective, which can empower them with the information and support to build on their existing skills and strengths and acquire new ones. The debate will present concrete tools that increase the employability of people with low skills through information and communication technologies, and will further elaborate on different forms of cooperation between different stakeholders at all levels and the role that the European Union, in collaboration with civil society actors, can play in fostering the exchange of ideas and good practices within the career guidance sector.
