One of the aims of our Project has been to use the professional knowledge and experience of the experts who work in the area of career counselling, especially of our Austrian partners ÖSB Consulting GmbH, to assist the teachers – career counsellors in schools and other institutions in their responsible and motivational work in that field.
Hence, we created the concept of career counselling for Vocational Education Training (VET) students and NEETs (young people in neither employment nor education or training) that enables provision of individual guidance based on competence and motivation checks. The emphasis has been put on individual career counselling services provided to VET students. The counselling process helps students and young people recognise their strengths and weaknesses and supports them in making important career decisions and choosing most optimal pathways (further education, employment or self-employment).
Along with the concept, as an addition that will help teachers (and) counsellors, we have created a list of competences that a student counsellor should have.
