Evaluation of the Virtual Counselling Training

The ERASMUS+ project „Guide My W@y – A European Career Guidance and Counselling Concept for International Youth Mobility“ approached an innovative aspect of counselling.

It successfully developed the basis for advanced training measures for European vocational education and professional guidance counsellors in order to train virtual e-Counselling dialogues within the virtual classroom.

The training of 8 webinars à 90 minutes each, enabled the participating counsellors (EURES and others) from different countries (Czech Republic, Germany, Poland and Spain) to get to know the virtual aspect of counselling within virtual classrooms and adapt the developed European concept on guidance and counselling to the requirements of virtual counselling.

The webinars were composed of teaching the European Career Guidance Concept, introducing the virtual classroom, establishing the differences between face-to-face and virtual counselling, teaching important features of the virtual communication, teaching virtual counselling scenarios and practicing the European Career Guidance Concept through virtual counselling dialogues.

These virtual counselling dialogues enabled the participating counsellors to learn how to use the virtual classroom and its tools and how to guide a young person properly in a virtual environment.
