Understanding Career Management Skills

The LEarning And Decision making Resources (LEADER) project aims at defining and share a "sustenable" framework on "career management skills" (CMS) and at developing training resources for career guidance practitioners. CMS is the term used to describe the skills, attributes, attitudes and knowledge that individuals require in order to manage their career. CMS define a set of learning outcomes that will support individuals to develop their careers throughout life. In a learning paradigm the development of CMS becomes one of the key objectives of lifelong guidance.
The project consortium has prepared the first project report: "Understanding Career Management Skills". The document presents an analysis of the data collected as part of the first phase of the project and explores the concept of career management skills (CMS) from the perspectives of the partner countries: Italy; Spain; Romania; Greece; Turkey; and the UK. Data were collected using surveys and focus groups representing practitioners working in career related roles in the partner countries. Construction of the research tools was underpinned by a literature review to identify current thinking in relation to CMS. Responses to the survey were received from 222 respondents from six partner countries and over 85 individuals contributed to focus groups. The report is now available freely on line here and it will be presented during the next international conference in Barcelona, on the 13th of April 2016."

After one year of activities of research, the international Consortium of the European project LE.A.DE.R., promoted by the University of Camerino and Centro Studi Pluriversum has devoloped a common framework on Career Management Skills (CMS). This new concept is crucial to design, develop and assess career guidance interventions and services.


The International Training in Barcelona (April 2016) will be a great opportunity for teachers, guidance practitioners, educators, tutors and trainers from all Europe, for sharing ideas, for learning new career guidance models and for testing guidance tools and training resources. The main aim of this international "twinning training" is learning from each other's the methodological and pedagogical aspects of a new "Career Management Skills" framework as base for a European Lifelong Guidance System.
