The Erasmus+ project #Guidance - digital tools and method development has been given an Erasmus+ Good Practice award.

On the project's website one can read that career guidance has a strong impact on social inclusion as it enables better access to employment, improved welfare and increased competences. It has the potential to play an important role in supporting youth to make well-informed decisions about their future careers. This is particularly true for schoolchildren and students with special needs and/or from socio-economically deprived backgrounds.

The project aimed to equip and support career guidance counsellors.

The Örebro region in Sweden has been the main coordinator. Together with European partners from Belgium, Finland, Latvia and Portugal, a toolbox has been developed to increase guidance counsellors’ competences on how to use and adapt digital tools and methods to make career guidance for youth and young adults more inclusive

As a complement to the toolbox, a training package has been produced on creating inclusive career guidance sessions using digital technology
