NICE publishes Handbook for Academic Training of Career Guidance and Counselling Professionals
The “NICE Handbook” offers scientifically based arguments for training career professionals in higher education institutions, a vision of which core competences career professionals will need in the future, and a framework for designing and developing degree programmes in career guidance and counselling.
The NICE Handbook exists in two different versions, which can be downloaded here or ordered (in print) from johannes_katsarov[at]hotmail.de. The short version aims at reaching a broader audience and primarily comprises central concepts (e.g. the NICE Core Competences). The full version of the NICE Handbook additionally comprises research which was undertaken in the network on the current structures, contents and approaches in the higher education of career professionals in Europe, as well as a chapter on innovative themes for academic training.
