FYC Career Guidance for a Modern Labour Market Seminar

DATE / TIME 17/02/2022
1:30 pm - 4:30 pm


Ballymun Job Centre and Headway Ireland would like to invite you to our Erasmus+ FYC Seminar, focused on Career Guidance for a Modern Labour Market. We will discuss about inclusion of marginalised job seekers in technological workplaces, considering their soft skills, transversal competences and up-skilling in initial and continuous vocational education and training.

The Future-proof your Career project designed, developed and implemented a Future of Work Framework, focused on the identification -through a guidance process- of transversal skills which can be used to future-proof the careers of disadvantaged job seekers and enable sustainable future employment.

This Seminar will be an opportunity to learn about new approaches to Career Guidance, looking at the barriers and challenges of a digitalised world of work and those created as a result of the Covid19 pandemic from an inclusive perspective. Our partner Headway Ireland, specialised brain injury/stroke support service, will outline their Vocational Rehabilitation practice. They will share their evidence base approach to the introduction of the Future-Proof your Career to support best practice in person-centred planning, and give concrete examples of case studies and accommodations made to support accessibility.

We will also present the project Tool and Training piloted with Guidance Practitioners across 5 countries (Austria, Italy, Romania, Spain and Ireland) and our findings supported by a Psychometric Evaluation carried out by Dr. Nuala Whelan, expert key note speaker invited to our event.

Dr Nuala Whelan is a researcher and lecturer at Maynooth University. Her main areas of interest focus on employment guidance practice, careers, employability, and labour market policy. She lectures in career development and behaviour, careers and wellbeing, psychometrics and research methods, and provides employment and career related inputs on selected modules. She is a Chartered Work and Organisational Psychologist who has worked for 20 years as a practitioner in community based employment services with clients disadvantaged in the labour market.
