Austrian Euroguidance Conference 2022 "Online Guidance - Building Relationships in Digital Settings" (Hybrid)

Due to the socio-economic impact of COVID-19, the need for accessible career guidance has increased. Across Europe, guidance services have moved to the online space and there has been increased investment in the further development of online portals and distance counselling.

Cynthia Harrison, Cedefop, will outline the digital developments in lifelong guidance, the training needs of counsellors and the role of lifelong guidance in post-pandemic recovery through reskilling and upskilling.

Building a counselling relationship is an important factor for successful online counselling. The lecture by Stefan Kühne will shed light on possibilities of relationship building and discuss opportunities and limitations in the digital setting. What can online counsellors in educational and career guidance offer in terms of relationship and where are the limits?

Examples from Austria and Estonia show what developments guidance services have taken. Barbara Oberwasserlechner and Karin Okonkwo Klampfer (Bildungsberatung in Wien) will present Online Educational Guidance Austria, Margit Rammo (Euroguidance Estonia and Education and Youth Board of Estonia) and Kristina Orion (Estonian Unemployment Insurance Fund) will give an insight into the latest developments in the field of online guidance in Estonia.

In the afternoon, 4 parallel workshops will offer the opportunity to deepen the discussion and to get to know innovative approaches in the field of guidance.

This year's hybrid Euroguidance conference is part of the "Global Careers Month", a joint effort of Cedefop, the European Commission, ETF, ILO, OECD, UNESCO and the World Bank. The plenary lectures in the morning will be streamed for the European audience.

We invite you to network with colleagues from Austria and Europe at the Euroguidance Conference 2022! Throughout the event, a project exhibition and an Erasmus+ Corner will provide an opportunity to get to know projects and develop project ideas.

The event will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Euroguidance network and 25 years of Euroguidance Austria.
