The turbulent developments in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic pose enormous challenges for our personal and professional lives. Labour markets in Europe have undergone profound restructuring and are under pressure from high unemployment. Education and work have moved to the online space. But here, too, it is evident that the crisis has been especially hard on those who are already disadvantaged and in danger of being excluded.

The pandemic and its social and economic consequences are far from over and have far-reaching implications for the future. How can guidance professionals support people in mastering future challenges? What can we do to help people to build their resilience and manage change? What tools are available to people applying for jobs? One such new tool is the Europass portal, which was launched in July 2020 and has many functions, such as secure personal storage space for each user and the ability to easily create and share materials with a variety of graphic and content options tailored to individual applications from a pre-existing profile.

In addition to the launch of the new Europass portal and a panel discussion, the event features a keynote by Tristram Hooley, professor of vocational training at Derby University. Participants can choose from five parallel method and discussion workshops.

The conference will take place online on 12. November 2020 between 09.30 a.m. - 04.00 p.m CET.

Your registration for this event is possible until 09. November 2020.
