New NICE Website

New NICE Website

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

we are happy to announce that today the new NICE website has been successfully launched.

Our site address (domain) remains the same: www.nice-network.eu as in the past. We would be happy if you could advertise the NICE Website through the homepages of your degree programmes and share the link in other suitable ways.

We have now a new and more user-friendly design. It is customized for different devices – PCs, tablets and smartphones. The development of the site is now also in our hands – that means that we are no longer dependent on external service providers and can react more quickly and make necessary changes.

For your work with the new NICE Website, we wish you a good start!

If you notice any problem or find an information that is no longer up to date, please contact us! For this purpose please use the comment function or our contact form.

With warmest regards,

on behalf of the Network Dissemination Team and the Network Coordinators

Monika Kukytė

NICE publishes Handbook for Academic Training of Career Guidance and Counselling Professionals

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.
