Introduction of the Guide My W@y! eGuidance Concept
International Career Guidance
The goal of international career guidance is to help young people to make a proper career choice and to support them as they progress in their planning of moving abroad. EURES and other guidance counsellors seek to promote career mobility, equal access to vocational or professional education and labour markets in Europe for all those wishing to cross borders. This eGuidance Concept provides a practice-oriented training for EURES guidance counsellors and other guidance experts working in the field of international youth mobility.
This practice-oriented eGuidance Concept focuses on a systematic elaboration of European career guidance methods based on the target’s group needs. It has been realized by the active involvement of the target group of EURES and other counsellors. Moreover, the eGuidance Concept is adapted to the essentials of the area knowledge in the field of international (circular) mobility of young people who
a) emigrate from their home country abroad and
b) remigrate back to the country of origin, bringing along specific skills and intercultural competences.
The aim of the eGuidance Concept lies within merging it with new technologies (interactive, autodidactic Internet Portal) and digital learning equipment (virtual classroom and e-Counselling dialogues) as a chance to a new and further development of an efficient, low- threshold, low cost and open-access eLearning and teaching opportunity for EURES and other counsellors.
