Project Reference: 2018-1-NO01-KA204-038870
The main objective of this Erasmus+ project is to improve the quality and the effect of how work guidance is used in practice. This is in order to better motivate more low skilled workers/employees to seek work guidance as a preventive measure in cases where they might lose their job due to structural changes at work.
The main target group for this project is teachers/trainers (coaches) that need to improve their coaching skills when delivering practical work guidance to employees with low basic skills and/or employees in danger of falling out of working life due to structural changes. The results will also be relevant for working with job seekers trying to enter working life.
The innovative aim of the project is to develop new ways of using the best and most efficient parts of existing methodology, by focusing on the exchange of good practice, combined with re-design and validation of already in-use tools and/or describing how to adapt well-known methodology in new ways, for good improved practical work guidance towards the groups mentioned above.
The partnership consists of partners from Norway, Denmark, Ireland, Portugal, and Slovenia.
Outputs of the project:
- The National perspective – a comparative study
- The Guidance Manual for work guidance towards low skilled workers
