Description The Individual Action Plan (IAP) is an Active Labour Market Policy measure that should be used by local public employment services. It is an active and prevented tool targeted at the young and long-term unemployed. In this paper we focus on identifying both its official prescribed goals at the supranational and national level and on its real operational goals at the local level in the case of the Czech Republic. Identically to other EU states we observe a high level of goal modification (i.e. regional policy discretion) in the Czech Republic. The Results of The Research are: (1) a typology of IAPs operational (and related individual access) goals, (2) the observation that IAP in the Czech Republic is implemented in a discrepant context of bureaucratic and professional approach.
