CAREER MANAGEMENT SKILLS FRAMEWORK FOR SCOTLAND
By iccdppadm @ 7:46 PM :: 10952 Views :: 23 Comments :: :: European Union (EU), Europe, United Kingdom, Co-ordination and Leadership, Career Management Skills
The Framework, published by Skills Development Scotland in July 2012, describes career management skills set around 4 themes:
  • Self - developing a sense of self in society
  • Strengths - acknowledging and building on one's strengths and experiences
  • Horizons - visualising futures, and planning and realising them
  • Networks - developing support relationships and networks.

The skills are presented as "I" statements accompanied by descriptions of behaviours that demonstrate the possession of such skills. The Framework is intended to assist the design and development of resources to support the development of such skills in a variety of learning settings (school to adult), and to provide a common language in Scotland for all organisations involved in the delivery of careers information, advice and guidance. The publication gives advice on ways to implement the Framework.

CAREER GUIDANCE IN GERMANY
By iccdppadm @ 8:23 PM :: 6053 Views :: 18 Comments :: :: European Union (EU), Europe, Co-ordination and Leadership, Germany

Career Guidance in Germany

 

This brochure, published by the National Guidance Forum of Germany, gives an overview of the basic structure of the German guidance system especially for our partners in the European Union and beyond. In general, the German system provides access to educational and career guidance services for all citizens at any stage of their lives – whether they are in education or training, employed, unemployed or looking for continuing education. The structure of guidance provision reects the German education and employment system with its shared responsibilities between the Federation, the Lander and the municipalities. Hence, the provision of career guidance is traditionally based on the distinction between educational guidance  (Bildungsberatung) in the educational sector and vocational guidance  (Berufsberatung) in the vocational training and employment sector. Cooperation across the sectors is in this context crucial. Beginning with an introduction into the German educational system, the brochure follows the life course describing guidance provisions in schools, vocational education, higher education, and for employment, unemployment and continuing education. Additional sections deal with guidance for special target groups and guidance through the internet. With chapters on quality and professionalism in guidance and on European cooperation, the brochure also considers systemic issues of professional development. Social and economic changes remain a permanent challenge for further developing lifelong guidance in the context of lifelong learning needs.

BILDUNGS-UND BERUFSBERATUNG IN DEUTSCHLAND
By iccdppadm @ 8:05 PM :: 5175 Views :: 0 Comments :: Public Policy, European Union (EU), Europe, Co-ordination and Leadership, Germany

Bildungs- und Berufsberatung in Deutschland

 Diese Broschüre gibt den ausländischen Partnern in der Europäischen Union und darüber hinaus einen Überblick über die Grundstruktur des Systems der Bildungs- und  Berufsberatung in Deutschland. Für jeden Lebensabschnitt – sei es in Schule, Studium, Aus- und Weiterbildung, im Beruf oder bei Arbeitslosigkeit – bietet das deutsche Beratungssystem grundsätzlich allen Bürgerinnen und Bürgern Zugang zu Beratungsdiensten. Charakterisiert durch die geteilten Zuständigkeiten zwischen Bund, Ländern und Kommunen, die das deutsche Bildungs- und Beschäftigungssystem prägen, beruht das Beratungssystem traditionell auf der Unterscheidung zwischen Bildungs- und Weiterbildungsberatung im Bildungsbereich auf der einen und Berufsberatung für den Ausbildungs- und Beschäftigungssektor auf der anderen Seite. Bereichsübergreifende Kooperation und Vernetzung sind deshalb wesentlich. Nach einer kurzen Einführung in das deutsche Bildungssystem beschreibt die Broschüre die Beratungsangebote in Schule, Ausbildung und Hochschule, im Arbeitsleben und bei Weiterbildungsbedarf. Beratung für besondere Zielgruppen sowie Beratung über das Internet werden in eigenen Abschnitten näher betrachtet. Kapitel über Qualität und Professionalität und die europäische Kooperation in diesem Bereich berichten über die permanenten Bemühungen um die professionelle Weiterentwicklung des Beratungssystems. Denn der gesellschaftliche Wandel stellt eine kontinuierliche Herausforderung für die Verbesserung lebensbegleitender Beratungsangebote im Kontext lebenslangen Lernens dar.

PROFESSIONALISING CAREER GUIDANCE: COMPETENCES AND QUALIFICATION ROUTES IN EUROPE
By iccdppadm @ 4:43 PM :: 7768 Views :: 9 Comments :: :: Training and Qualifications, European Union (EU), CEDEFOP, EU
This 2009 report, commissioned by CEDEFOP, presents the findings from a Europe-wide study with the following aims:
• to review trends and patterns in training provision for career guidance practitioners;
• to develop a common competence framework for career guidance practitioners in the
European Union (EU).
Sections 1 to 4 review current training and qualification systems for career guidance practitioners in Europe. These sections explore the current and changing context of career guidance services, national training systems and emerging trends across Europe. Section 4 contains case studies which explore, in some depth, recent developments in six countries.
Sections 5 to 7 focus on the competence framework of career guidance practitioners. They explore the concept of competence, the design of the competence framework and suggestions for its use. Section 8 explores ways of moving forward, and links the two strands of the study by relating current and proposed training issues to proposed uses of the
competence framework.
