Vocational Guidance and Counseling

Program Overview

Counseling values the importance of developing full human potential and enhancing quality of life within the context of life-long learning. As a result, an overarching social justice approach is emphasized, which includes a strong conceptual foundation, an ethical orientation, and ongoing skills development

Vocational guidance is geared towards young people and adults. In particular, vocational guidance comprises the provision of advice and information about the choice of a career, specifics on individual careers and career requirements, ways of funding vocational education and training, important trends in the world of work, information on the situation and development of the labor market, and advice on how to find employment or a training place. The vocational guidance counselors work together with interested adolescents and young adults to ascertain goals and objectives, and identify vocational opportunities and alternatives.

Systematic career counseling seeks to have a positive influence on the choice of career and thus the future personal and professional life of youth and young adults. Comprehensive information on vocational training, the responsibilities, requirements and prospects associated with various professions, as well as information on employers, ways of accessing and funding vocational training, development and trends in the training and labor market help young people to choose their future career path. Identifying people’s individual interests, skills, competencies and talents is central to making a reliable choice of career.  In this context, information is also provided on job application processes and closing dates for applications.
