Meeting the Needs of Employment: European Curriculum Guidelines for Lifelong Vocational Counsellor in line with the Challenges of EU Enlargement
Conscious of the need for vocational counsellors to address the range of lifelong requirements for guidance and counselling, the project will develop and promote a new, post-graduate, modular and accelerated curriculum for professional practitioners.After analysing the functions assigned to lifelong vocational counsellors within the partner countries, as well as in current training provision, a common Occupational Standard or Job Profile will be created to record competence categories. This will form the basis of joint development and testing of a toolkit to deliver the new Modular Curriculum. Finally, the project experience will be distilled into a series of recommendations, relevant to policy makers, capable of influencing education & employment systems for vocational counsellors.The project will further capitalise on the decentralised nature of the partner organisations to establish a web-based transnational network of lifelong vocational counsellors, also involving educators, potential employers and relevant policy-makers. A broad dissemination strategy at national and European level will include development of project websites, production of project publications and attendance at relevant exhibitions and conferences.
