Good is a specialist consultancy in employability. Formerly known as VRC, we have participated in or led numerous projects both in the UK and internationally to research the skills of employment advisers, and to develop associated curriculum and training methods for them.
Our work encompasses basic and advanced employability skills, face to face and e-learning, curriculum and training quality standards, reviews of research and evidence, and our own original research.
We are not associated with any institution or viewpoint, other than our commitment to ‘what works’, to evidence and ethics, to critical thinking and to promoting the active ingredients in employment advice to disadvantaged people.
We have worked in many European countries as well as the UK, and are really pleased to have put our comparative evaluation of a training course for advisers of refugees – showing that it works, and that comparative evaluations can be done with reasonable effort and cost, and the Handbook for Working with Migrants and Refugees, in the IEP Knowledge Bank. Most of our products and reports are free, and we invite any IEP Members to contact us for copies and discussion.
