First meeting of Career Guidance Counsellors
Center for Career Development of University of Pristina “Hasan Pristina” hosted the first meeting of career guidance counsellors from higher education institutions in Kosovo. Founding members of this initiative are University of Pristina, and Colleges: AAB, FAMA, UNIVERSUM, ILIRIA, and IBCM.
Main goal of this network is to contribute for the development of a sustainable system of career guidance advice and orientation for students of higher education in Kosovo. That said, the main aim is to enable current and graduated students to prepare better for the labor market and their professional careers by providing them with professional career guidance services and updated information.
This initiative was further enriched and strengthened from the practices learned during study visit in Slovenia and Austria. Visiting participants were able to learn more on the actual working practices and services offered within Career Guidance Centers in University of Ljubljana, Maribor, Graz (Austria), and Trieste (Italy).
The process of strengthening cooperation between Career Guidance Counsellors in Kosovo was facilitated by EYE Project while the main aim is to promote services offered by CGC and increase opportunities for better education, training, and employment of youth in Kosovo.
