The method is being developed with the involvement of practitioners from the fields of guidance and counseling, continuing education, and company practice / human resource development. It supports counseling practitioners in harmonizing the digital competence needs of employees, companies and providers of continuing vocational training.
A method manual, a curriculum and seminars are being developed to accompany the method. The curriculum will be tested in the context of academic training and further education of counseling practitioners. By involving local networks of practitioners from the fields of counseling, continuing education and human resources in Germany, Italy, Austria and the Netherlands, a high level of practical relevance and openness to adaptation in the national counseling context will be ensured.
The project will result in academically trained CGC practitioners having a greater impact on the digital transformation: They will learn how to effectively collaborate with all actors involved in digital training. As this is a new and wider understanding of Career Guidance, academic training for CGC practitioners and experts needs enhancement. Digital transformation is also a challenge for HE and study programs in this context. CGC practitioners as well as other professionals in the field (e. g. in-company trainers, HR experts, adult education experts) need a deeper understanding of the digital transformation and the needs in the labor market as well as the training offers and programs available. Academic training needs a digital transformation, and the project supports this for the HEI working in this field.
