Czech National Career Counselling Awards

The contest is designed to award the best practices and best projects that take place in career guidance in the Czech Republic. The main aim of the contest is to raise awareness of counselling services among the general public as well as among the experts themselves who often are not aware of each other’s activities. The 2010 round is inspired by the European Year for Combating Poverty and Social Exclusion. It is focused on the career guidance provision and projects, including services provided by employers. The first prize in each of three categories is a study visit to counselling institutions in Sweden. The awarded contributions will be presented during this International Congress.
