6.1. Participation in guidance – modes of delivery The users of guidance were first asked about what kind of guidance they had participated in and as table 6.1 shows most of them had participated in a face-to-face interviews with a guidance counsellor, or about three of every four of them (76%). About one of every four had experienced guidance as integrated in their lessons and teaching activities or in group-sessions with a counsellor (23-24%), whereas guidance from a teacher or a projector program leader was less common (13-14%). Only 7% of users had been guided through the internet, such as through websites, e-mail or chat-rooms. Respondents were also asked about the number of sessions of the type of guidance they had (see table 6.2). Most of the users had only been to one or two sessions of the type of guidance they had experienced. Among those who had experienced a face-to-face session with

a guidance counsellor two of every five had experienced only one session (43%), whereas about one of every three had two sessions (31%) and one of every four had been to three or more sessions (27%). Among those who had experienced guidance in group-sessions, around three of every four (72%) had either had one or two sessions and about two thirds (67%) of those who had experience guidance as integrated in lessons or teaching activities. The users learned about the guidance services through diverse channels (see table 6.3). Most of them (30-32%) learned about it either through the unemployment offices or at school or as a part of some educational program. Many of the users also heard about the guidance services through acquaintances or at work (18-19%), or through the media or their trade union.
