Careers advice in schools has, since 1998, been an integral part of the services provided by schools.

  • On seventh and eighth grades curriculum includes a subject “Vocational Orientation”.
  • On ninth grade pupils can choose to attend a different school type – a polytechnic school - which combines basic general education, vocational orientation and on-the-job training in order to allow pupils to get in contact with companies which offer apprenticeships.
slide9

School counsellors

  • Individual guidance and counselling provided by school counsellors.
  • In all schools throughout both levels of secondary school education (Secondary I and II) from the ages of ten to nineteen.
  • School counsellors provide general and careers advice, as well as guidance and are usually teachers with qualifications in ‘guidance and counselling’, although additional part-time counsellors are also supporting.
slide10

School psychologists

  • This service is provided for specific issues concerning personal development, special needs and diagnostics. The three main aims are prevention, intervention and rehabilitation.
  • It also incorporates advice on further education and career options.
  • In recent years the provision of services of school psychologists has been further developed by the creation of nationally uniform standards for school psychological services.
slide11

Since 1998/99 vocational guidance has been a compulsory exercise in the 7rd and 8th grade of general secondary school and academic secondary school with a total of 32 lessons a year.

  • There are usually 1 teacher at a school teaching “Vocational Orientation” for 7th and 8th grade.
  • Usually there is one career counsellor at a school for all pupils, sometimes it is the same person as the teacher for VO
  • In Austria there are about 90 school psychologists.
slide12

Question: Why do you need career catching counsellors when you have a 3 tier system?

  • Answer: Career catching counsellors work in addition to school counsellors, they are the link to the world of work; they develop projects and support schools in implementing these. CCC‘s are the answer to the demand of apprenticeship trainers to get better oriented young people.
