People who know their interests and skills have fewer problems in choosing a job or a training that suits them.
The ProfilPASS is a German tool that assists people in finding out what their strengths and competences are. With the help of an advisor they discover their hidden competences and set their goals. Therefore the ProfilPASS tool prevents people from dropping out of training and education. In this EU funded project we will adapt the tool to the participating partner’s needs and test it with young people and adults.
SCOUT is a project that is linked to the developments related to the ProfilPASS as an instrument for competence assessment. It addresses counsellors working with new immigrants in six European countries who bring forward the potentials and interests for competence development of the new immigrants. For this purpose, the ProfilPASS is adapted and translated into Simple Language. Apart from the SCOUT-toolkit comprising several counselling tools, a curriculum and a manual for counsellors are developed. The project is realized by the DIE as a coordinator in cooperation with partner organizations from Greece, Austria, Sweden, Slovenia and Spain.
