From 07-01 to 15-01-2016 further testing of the curriculum for the training of competence counsellors took place in the Czech Republic, in Slovakia and in Germany. Previously the training materials have been significantly extended in terms of content and methodology, by all of the Project Partners from France, Belgium, Slovakia, Germany and the Czech Republic. To use all this adequately, an extensive and intensive translation and preparation work had to be done in the 3 countries of the testing.The 5-day Training is continuously designed as pedagogical process. The starting point is a detailed reflection of the own current consulting activities by each participant. This awareness should sustainably support the identification of the nature and the principles of the BdC according to the French model. In the further course of the training, it is of course about the use of goal oriented methods, for example autobiographical methods, the portfolio, behaviour observations or test procedures. It is always about the use of a mix of methods and about the answer of the question: How can the consultant give best support for the participants of the BdC in his learning process regarding his career? Because at the end of the BdC the participant should define his professional project and determine the next steps.
Besides the transfer of knowledge, the training provided a good frame for a stimulating exchange of experience among the participants of the training. Overall the 5-day course required intensive and concentrated work of all involved parties, because afterwards all participants will demonstrate their acquired knowledge and abilities in the practical implementation of 3 BdCs.
