NICE Academy in Split, Croatia | October 9-12, 2019
Innovative Approaches to Career Guidance and Counselling
We are proud to announce that the 2019 Academy of NICE will be hosted by the Faculty of Economics of the University of Split in Croatia from October 9-12, 2019, organised by dear colleague Prof Srečko Goić.
Aim of the Academy
Career guidance and counselling is a vibrant practice, which includes diverse professional roles and responsibilities (career counselling, career education, career assessment and information, career service management & social systems interventions). Over the past years, many new approaches have been introduced and tested to improve career support for diverse citizen groups, inspired both by new technologies and other practices.
The main learning aim of this year’s academy will be to introduce participants to a wide range of innovative approaches, which they can embrace in their practice (as practitioners) or training programs (as academic trainers).
Benefits for Participants
- Knowledge of diverse new approaches to career support
- Empirical findings on the appropriateness of diverse approaches for different groups
- Discussions with practitioners and academic trainers on innovative approaches to career support
- Practical applications of new approaches in diverse training workshops and interactive lectures
- Supervision on career support or academic training
- Structured networking activities to build international, trans-disciplinary connections
Interactive Keynote Lectures
Participants can choose from several training workshops, which will be offered in parallel for different target groups.

As the academy is a structured learning event around the topic of “Innovative Approaches to Career Guidance and Counselling”, funding of the EU Erasmus+ programme can be used to cover travel, stay and registration fee. Even though there are numerous workshops one can choose from, they all are in line with this topic and contribute to the learning outcomes described earlier. If you work with career guidance and counselling as a practitioner, the adult education strand within Erasmus+ can be used. If you work as an academic with career guidance and counselling, the higher education strand within Erasmus+ can be used.
Do contact the organisers if you are interested in using this funding and they will be happy to explain the possibilities and criteria (firstname.lastname@example.org). An information package will be availabe here soon.
