The Handbook includes a report for career counselling status in Europe nowadays, activities and exercises for career counsellors and theoretical and pedagogical background of these activities. The research material and activities have been structured in three (3) thematic areas which cover the field of career guidance (1) self development, (2) information about he labour market, (3) planning the career path. All the activities have been implemented and evaluated in several schools (80) of our network through Europe.
