Our Digital Tool for Career Decision-Making Styles is on its way!

The GUIDE project aims to help Career Guidance Professionals (CGP), to ensure that all genders can choose among opportunities based on interest and ability, rather than gender. During the project’s implementation a set of learning resources and methods will be developed and will be available to CGPs, universities, and other training providers to support all genders in making career decision without using gender stereotypes.

Few words about the upcoming Tool.

This Digital Tool for Career Decision-Making Styles will be designed to assess an individual’s approach to making career decisions, known as Career Decision-Making Styles, and explore how stereotypes may impact their decision-making style. The Tool will be free of charge and will be available in all partners languages (English, Danish, Greek, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Slovenian and Dutch).

The procedure for the creation of this Digital Tool for Career Decision-Making Styles, involves the development of a model for counseling interviews within the context of the Erasmus+ project GUIDE. This model is intended to help Career Guidance Professionals in guiding individuals seeking career advice.

The complexity of various counseling contexts has been highlighted, taking into account resource constraints, temporal aspects, and the number of counseling sessions offered. After research, we took into consideration that advise-seeker’s characteristics, including age, motivation, and academic level, also influence the counseling process. Our Digital Tool for Career Decision-Making Styles will only target young individuals seeking advice, for their first career steps.

Organizational factors, such as public or private organization and settlement type, play a role in how counseling is conducted. Furthermore, the experience and training of the counsellor and the counselling relationship are crucial for effective communication and outcomes. The development of training materials and tools for counselors is a part of the project’s ultimate goal, emphasizing a flexible and gender-neutral approach to career guidance.

In order to create the Digital Tool for Career Decision-Making Styles, following you can find all the procedures that are already and will be taking place the next semester:

  • Desk research about the Career Decision-Making Styles.
  • Interviews with counselors that will significally contribute to our Tool.
  • Creation of the drafts and proposals of the Digital Tool for Career Decision-Making Styles.
  • Creation of its content.
  • Pilot test within the partnership and
  • External evaluation by CGPs in seven (7) countries.
  • Finetuning based on the external evaluation.
  • Finalisation of the Digital Tool for Career Decision-Making Styles.

After its finalisation, the Tool will be released, and Open Events will be held to disseminate it in partners’ countries.

The project is evolving and progressing dynamically!
