Coordinator of Youth Guidance Centres - a new tailor-made education
Young adults not in education or training and without a job is a vulnerable group in our societies. The so-called “Youth Guidance Centres”, providing multiple welfare services gathered under one roof has proved to be a successful model when organizing an effective answer to this societal and individual challenge. This low-threshold service provision has become increasingly common, particularly in the Baltic Sea Region with for example “Ohjaamo” in Finland, “Navigatorcentrum” in Sweden, “Ungevejen” in Denmark and “Jugendberufsagentur” in Germany.
Commonly, the centres gather multiple municipal and national public services responsible for educational guidance, labour market integration, social services, and health. The idea is to make it easier for the user to access available services, while facilitating coordination and cooperation among authorities both on a case by case basis and on a strategic level.
In the framework of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region and it´s flagship School to Work (S2W) it has been decided to define this new profession as coordinator and develop and test an education on Baltic Sea Region basis. The competence profile for this new profession as coordinator has been developed but before starting to recruit participants to the pilot education it is important to conduct a dialogue with stakeholders.
The workshop will be an opportunity to present the first results from this project, receive feedback on the draft curriculum for the education and to recruit participants to the pilot education starting this autumn.
