Share experiences face to face!

It’s good to have experiences. It’s even better to share them. That’s why we facilitate the professional development and networking of everyone – individuals and practitioners alike – involved in educational and careers guidance. In particular, we do this through Cross Border seminars, international networking conferences and further events.

Cross Border seminars

Working with the Euroguidance centres in Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Germany, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia, each year we organize a Cross Border seminar of several days duration for educational and career guidance practitioners. The sharing of experiences about a subject related directly to the work of guidance practitioners is the focus of these international seminars. After the seminars, the seminar leaders prepare and publish an in-depth analysis of the situation in the various countries and the outcomes of the workshops.

International networking conference

International networking conferences are designed to bring together guidance practitioners from around 30 countries, with the aim of enhancing their knowledge of a particular subject and providing a networking opportunity. The first international networking convention in Switzerland took place on September 14th 2012, in Zurich. In addition to keynote speeches by experts and the opportunity to exchange experiences, there were six workshops offering insights into project examples and case studies.
