Projects on Career Guidance in Europe


1. Dynamic Onlinetool for Guidance


Programme: Leonardo da Vinci

Thematic Area: Career Guidance

Target Group: Career guidance counsellors, career guidance teachers and career advisors as well as those who are currently planning their own career.
Partners: IBW, Austria; Asset Technology Ltd., Greece; Careers Europe, United Kingdom; CINOP, Netherlands; Fachhochschule des Bundes, Germany; Mittelstansbuo Balkan, Bulgaria, multiTASK, Austria; Vytautas Magnus University, Lithuania.
Start Date: August 2005

End Date: July 2007

The pilot project focuses on ICT-professions as this is one of the sectors where the required knowledge, skills and competences permanently change, for example due to technical innovations. In such a sector a regularly updated dynamic onlinetool is of great advantage and is also a novelty above the internationally existing guidance information tools. Not only it enables to offer to-the-day updated information for guidance counsellors and clients; it also offers an information to ICT-companies about what knowledge, skills and competences their competition requires.
