The transition from school into professional life is one of the most challenging moments in life. A competitive job market requires young people to not only possess an excellent qualification but also the ability to apply their skills in the workplace, to be adaptive and to act in an entrepreneurial way. Developing a career is a process, not just a destination. Unfortunately, not enough attention is paid to the developmental process required to engage in thoughtful, thorough career development.
Therefore the aims of the project are:
- to map out and assess the role of career guidance in supporting entrepreneurship learning in initial vocational education and training (IVET)
- to design and offer a professional development programme for career advisors in order to upgrade the services provided to VET students for a better career orientation towards entrepreneurship routes
- to create the CAREER HUBS based on the creation of synergies between the labour market, SMEs, schools VET etc. in order to support the work-based learning opportunities to be offered to students, as well as real-life opportunities.
