Publications

Our publications are for everybody who works in people’s professional development - career advisors, teachers, further education lecturers, psychologists, social workers, coaches, therapists and also for people interested in further self-development. The aim of our books is to share our experience in the field of career guidance and counselling, to provide practitioners with useful information and tips for guidance activities as well as to encourage them to reflect upon their daily practise. As we strive to reach out to career practitioners not only in the Czech Republic, we often invite experts from different contexts and countries to participate in the creative process and contribute to our books. We received the National Career Counselling Awards in 2014, 2017, 2019 and 2021 for our publishing activities. All our publications were created as a part of European projects and are available for free.

  • In this book we explore the career practitioner’s role from the standpoint of relationships - to ourselves, our community and the world itself. We analyse the impact of these relationships on our work, and looking into topics and challenges one can expect to face in each of these spheres. The handbook offers methods, tools and activities which career practitioners can employ while working with pupils and students. It was written as a part of the Erasmus+ international project and is available in Czech, English, Danish, Greek and Spanish versions.

  • The Diverse World of Career Guidance

    What are the elements that are influencing career choices of students at primary and secondary schools? How can career practitioners cope with all those influences and best support this target group in their decision-making process? Our report presents findings of a European research undertaken by five Erasmus project partners, which was conducted between September 2018 and July 2020. The main aim of the research was to develop an understanding of the influences on young people’s career decision making.

Eleven authors from three countries worked on this book, with the support of the project funded by the EU. It has been awarded the Czech National Award in Career Counselling.
