Marketing Text Making career choices is sometimes challenging. Life Long Career Guidance has been receiving increasing attention at both European and national levels. It is recognised as a cross-cutting theme of European policy design, touching upon general principles applicable to all policy fields (schools, VET, higher education, adult learning, employment and social inclusion). As previous studies have shown the role of career guidance counsellors in providing quality career guidance services to individuals becomes more and more crucial. However in order to fulfil this role career guidance counsellors must demonstrate their competence in a number of new demanding functions and activities. Career Management Skills, Quality Assurance in Career Guidance, innovative educational tools/materials, exploring training opportunities on their own initiative, keeping up to date with the current trends in career guidance are some these of functions.
The ultimate aim of the project is to enhance the further professional development and upgrading of the skills of career guidance counsellors on modern elements of lifelong Guidance and employability as well as to promote common understanding between the main policy makers and representative organizations on new emerging skills demanded from guidance practitioners by the work and business life.
The project includes the pilot implementation and evaluation of the prototype training system on a representative group of Career Guidance Counsellors, in each participating country as well as the dissemination, promotion and exploitation of the results of the project, in order to develop new policy practices.
