Fair Guidance is a project implemented by AIDRom under the leadership of TTG team training GmbH, a German project of strategic partnership financed by Erasmus + Program.
The most important aim of the project is for better integration of disadvantaged persons (low-skilled, migrants, ethnic minorities, long-term unemployed etc.) into education, training and the labor market offered through more client-oriented guidance and counseling that considers diversity issues.
Therefore more qualified counselors in the field of VET are needed who will be aware of various kinds of disparities and sensitized and prepared for equity, diversity and inclusion challenges. This is crucial in order to reach the disadvantaged persons in the first place and to respond as a counselor adequately to their needs and particular circumstances. Thus, the project will facilitate not only the access to guidance services but also the transition to further education, training and the world of work.”
Fair Guidance focuses on staff in VET (mainly counselors, advisers, trainers, and consultants), their professional development and initial qualification.
Final beneficiaries are persons from disadvantaged backgrounds and with fewer opportunities who will benefit from more individualized guidance services.
The project meets the following priorities in adult education for Strategic partnerships:
– “providing information on access to adult learning services, such as information on the validation of non-formal and informal learning, career and education guidance”
– “improving and extending the offer of high quality learning opportunities tailored to individual adult learners, including innovative ways of outreach and delivery”
– “developing adult educators’ competences to deal with diversified groups of learners, make use of new technologies for better outreach and teaching outcomes
