European conference Lifelong Career Guidance in a local and global network will be held in University Hradec Králové
23 – 24th November 2018
European conference Lifelong Career Guidance in a local and global network will take place 23. – 24. 11. 2018 in the University of Hradec Králové.
The conference is co-organized by the Czech Euroguidance centre (by the Centre for International Cooperation in Education) and the University of Hradec Králové.
Previous years dedicated to career guidance and current topics in the field were organized in cooperation with Masaryk University (2016) and Charles University (2017).
The main goal is to further support the professional field of career guidance, to support research in the field, enrich the public dialogue, and promote the diversity of guidance services.
Career guidance and counselling services are more and more provided in respect to the clients’ needs anchored in local communities or to the needs of the communities themselves – this trend resonates in the topic of this year conference. The cooperation among counsellors, among organisations and within interdisciplinary teams together with strategies of community planning or coordination mechanisms at the regional level are enabling career guidance to found their place within other services and organisations.
Career management skills development of both kids and adults is also including networking skills. The importance of mobility is increasing – in our context particularly among European countries which offer the opportunity of open borders and European programmes such as Erasmus+. Networking is also a tool for further professional development of career practitioners. Their involvement into the local and/or global social or professional networks is influencing their practice with clients and also changing a character of provided services. The question is, how career practitioners are experiencing and coping with this situation and what is a role of various networks in their professional development.
Once again, we would like to create a space for sharing and discussion where various European speakers will present their contributions, as well as Czech and Slovak practitioners and speakers.
The registration is open.
