This module focuses on how experts (teachers, school directors, parents, anyone involved in the orientation choices) should help students to find out what they want to do and offer them a variety of choices when it comes to guidance and counselling, and also make students realize they are the actors of their own life.

Chapter 4: Staying at school
2. A step-by-step path
If we want students to enroll in professional and technical trainings and to finish them, it is important to avoid any kind of deadlock situation. This can be avoided thanks to a step-by-step progression, achieving the same results as those who studied in the general branch. At that stage, any kind of hierarchy between technological and professional knowledge and more academic knowledge. The students need to aim higher studies either as part of his initial education or as part of a continuous training.
Likewise, no training should be regarded as a closed road. Whatever the level of professional studies might be, step by step paths should be considered. That would allow the youth to choose, at every step, between entering the working life or pursuing studies to have a better qualification.
The Lifelong Learning should also allow anyone to start again their training to obtain a higher level thanks to continuous training while rewarding their former training as well as the skills they developed. A student must be allowed to change course while capitalizing his transversal skills.
Those dimensions are essential because:
  • Firstly the generation Z is not ready to do a training that does not suit the youth and that leads to jobs that don’t interest them.
  • Then, the economic evolution has a speed up effect on the evolution of jobs. Nowadays, a person is likely to have four or five different jobs in their professional life and 50% of the jobs of tomorrow does not exist yet.

The strongest points of the E- learning package is the online accessibility of numerous resources for teachers and counsellors on how to understand pupils, how to deal with pupils at risk of early school leaving, how to motivate them to continue their studies at school.

The E-learning package section is an interesting source of information to include in my school counseling material. It enriches it.

All modules are interesting and present new approaches. I particularly liked module 6 with the chapter about generation Z. And I like the idea that students are the masters of the choices they make.

This module talks about ideas that already existed but that have never been set up.

The six training modules provide teachers and counsellors with the necessary skills which can enable them to guide students in their professional career. The modules display a wide diversity of online materials ranging from personal opinions on blogs, scientific articles, e-books, surveys, lectures, interviews or in/formational, explanatory, factual, and demonstrative video clips.

This module focuses on how teachers, school directors, counsellors, tutors or parents should help students by empowering them to discover themselves and identify the best ways to achieve their potential in life.
The module provides teachers and counsellors with theoretical and practical information on school guidance and counselling on career orientation starting from the basic definition of school guidance, its main actors, its role in students’ life as well as hands-on activities teachers and counsellors can use to help students with their career orientation and solutions to motivate students to stay at school. The module gives teachers and counsellors plenty of best practices, experiences and success stories to consider and follow.
