Transnational Vocational Counselling: Core Concepts for a Tertiary Education/Training
Augustyn Bańka , Bernd-Joachim Ertelt
AbstractOne of the greatest challenges Europe will face in the next decade is empowering people to manage their career development in the cross-cultural context. Economic and transnational integration enhances the problem of individuals situating their work and other life roles through participation in different cultures. The common European educational and labour market imposes on counsellors and the counselees alike a demand to develop new cultural competencies. Individuals have to learn a new body of abilities for cross-cultural mobility, while the counsellors have to expand their qualifications in the field of competencies necessary for empowering the counselee to manage their careers across the borders. This article presents a newer concept for empowering people to manage careers in multiple cultural contexts. It discusses the post-graduate teaching curriculum of Transnational Vocational Counselling (TVC), which has been developed in the Leonardo da Vinci research program conducted under the auspices of EuropeanCommission.
