About the conference:
Society and the world of work are once again facing thorough changes. Globalisation and migration, digitalisation and industry 4.0, demographic changes and shortage of specialised workers are just some trends which will cause revolutions in living and working. The education sector has to react to these changes.
Educational and career guidance will gain much more importance. Which challenges, however, will guidance organisations and above all guidance counsellors face? And how can they support persons with all kinds of educational and social backgrounds in designing their individual education and career paths in the future?
We invite you to go with us on an expedition through Europe. In the framework of two European partnership projects with lead partners from Baden-Württemberg, successful strategies of educational and career guidance have been elaborated. A main focus was on guidance for lower-skilled and disadvantaged target groups. At the final conference of the projects „BRIDGE – Building up regional initiatives to develop guidance for low-skilled adults“ and „FairGuidance“, international guidance practioners presented best practice examples from France, Sweden, Romania, Bulgaria and last not least Germany.
In panel discussions, we had the possibility to discover new approaches of guidance:
- Cooperation as a strategy of guidance
- E-Guidance – educational and career guidance online
- Business Intelligence in guidance
In a keynote speech, Prof. Dr. Peter Weber of the University of Applied Labour Studies highlighted new challenges for educational and career guidance 2025 – requirements of company – and the individual perspective. Patrizia Santomauro reflected on diversity in the context of counselling with the help of concrete examples.
