The project CURSOR addresses the issue of youth unemployment and social exclusion.
The objective was to offer to youth workers an opportunity for professional development along with innovative tools to use in their work to support the employability of young people with fewer opportunities.
We proposed a new model of career planning as a subject instead of career guidance as a service; a subject with resources at different levels, with required learning outcomes and an assessment framework to measure attainment.
CURSOR provides a completely new career planning framework where young Europeans are supported to acquire and develop the necessary skills to plan their own career progression pathway and to retain those skills for use throughout their active working life. CURSOR proposes the modernization of career planning to reflect the reality of the European employment marketplace where a change in one’s career pathway can be a frequent occurrence.
