Short description of the project

CAPE: Background

In an evolutive context of work and employment, counsellors in training and employment play a key role to provide better counselling and guidance services, reduce social exclusion and risks of precarious and part-time employment for their beneficiaries and for themselves.

At European and national levels, there is a lack of information about various aspects of the profession such as who they are, how they are recruited, what professional skills they are supposed or required to have, the exact nature of their role and tasks, and how attractive their job is. The need to update and upgrade their qualifications is growing as training and employment professionals have nothing more than a mere description of their function, whereas what they need, in connection with the diversity of the group, is to be fully acknowledged and identified in their work.

General aim and expected results

The main objective is to contribute to set key competences and criteria for the European certification of Career Counsellors. A report of required and suitable competencies to be a helpful professional for women and men who have to find a training and/or a job in the new european and mondial context, will be released.

To achieve these goals, the strategy will include:

All the materials, resources and findings produced will be shared across all the partner countries. The objectives will be achieved through internal surveys, common sharing and exchange meetings of project partners.
