La Fundación Bertelsmann apuesta por un sistema de orientación profesional coordinada de calidad con la edición de un manual práctico

La Fundación Bertelsmann ha editado un manual práctico para apoyar su Orientación Profesional Coordinada

The Bertelsmann Foundation is an operating entity founded in 1995 by Reinhard Mohn that conceives and implements projects to contribute to social change through the development of innovative experimental proposals, establishing a framework for partnership between education and employment. This is why it contributes to the development of a quality system of career guidance to improve the transition from school to work. In order to achieve this, the Foundation relies on the experience of other countries and extensive studies to implement, in collaboration with all the related agents, sustainable pilot projects.

MIT School has been chosen to perform one of these pilot projects, aimed to develop a quality Career Guidance Coordinated with the support and collaboration of educators, businesses and other institutions, based both on an innovative methodology as in training for the career guidance group at the School. Thus, the Foundation aim is to equip young people with sufficient tools to choosing their career path, ie create a system that values both the qualities, talents and skills of each student as the specific needs of the labor market.

This program, sponsored by the Ministry of Education and supported by professional as Karsten Hammer, German expert on career guidance, the philosopher and educator José Antonio Marina or Benito Echeverría, professor emeritus at the University of Barcelona, assumes that one of the causes for the high rate of youth unemployment is the weakness of the Spanish model of transition from school to work, which has not enough basis for an adequate response to the youth. Therefore, it is developed in Madrid, Barcelona and Andalusia, three communities that together account for 51% of youth unemployment in Spain. You can learn more about this project here.
