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 2 - Times of intervention and different roles
5. The precise role of the school steering committee
This steering committee within the school will:
  • Define a calendar of the different activities that aim at developing self-confidence, the knowledge of the social and economic environment
  • Mobilize the external resources, that offer a better knowledge of the training courses and of the firms
  • Rethink the organization of the class councils with a more open and positive vision where decisions are made according to:
    • A dialogue with the youth and his family
    • Encounters between the different actors in contact with the young people:
      • Teachers
      • Education staff
      • Management staff
The opinion of everyone should be at equal consideration.
  • Set up conditions so every student is the actor of his decisions, thanks to the quality of the information he receives, the experiences offered to him, beyond the school time.

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.

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.
