We, therefore, contacted our foreign colleagues and prepared the project „European Development of Counsellors“, abbreviated to EDECO. The application from the Erasmus plus program was approved in 2018 and we were able to start working on our plan. Prepare a new, yet model training for counsellors, which will focus on the internal settings of the counsellor and thus support his or her counselling work. We are pleased that great professionals from Austria, Finland, Slovakia, and Slovenia are working with us on our plan.

Together we are preparing a model training for counsellors, which is focused on supporting their inner state so that they can handle situations with the clients better.
We presented our training, for example, at the IAEVG conference in Bratislava, https://iaevgconference2019.sk. The conference was on the topic of Career Guidance for Inclusive Society.
The project benefits us in many ways. On the one hand, its content is very actively co-created by Lenka Cole and Lucie Sedláčková as lecturers. Besides, counsellors Nikola Ladnarová and Michaela Rožková are involved in it as participants in the model training. We are very proud of them because everything is done in English :). And we are also moving forward in project management because the whole project is coordinated by our organization. Michal Pejskar is in charge of the management.
