SHOT by SHaring Orientation Training

… we create better conditions for a transition to the job market

In today’s fast changing society, “orientation” is generally becoming a vital and strategic instrument for personal growth, social equality and efficient allocation of resources.

In the field of training and development we need to adapt to new challenges, since traditional training patterns have changed and skills acquired some time ago are no more up to date. Moreover, nowadays orientation is no longer primarily provided to young individuals selecting and finding their educational pathways, as more and more people belonging to other age groups need to change jobs, improve skills and, in this way, become part of lifelong guidance. With job orientation being a core strategic basis and instrument for developing personal skills, it has become necessary to empower people with respective skills for autonomous and self-directed management of this orientation in professional life.

The project SHOT aims at developing a new European-wide job-orientation concept that improves the transition to the job market especially for young people, women and people over 50

  • by analysing and comparing existing orientation and consultancy models in each partner country (Austria, France, Italy, UK) and establishing sustainable networks
  • by elaborating new patterns on the basis of the existing ones
  • by testing new patterns during an experimental phase in each partner country
  • and by presenting these patterns to public stakeholders (social partners, enterprises VET providers etc.) and implement them in combination with didactic material
