This project seeks to improve the quality and relevance of the guidance sector and directly address the needs of guidance practitioners enhancing the:
Capability to empower women to develop confidence on their self-perceived competences, to embrace learning opportunities and help them reach their full potential within the labour market, especially in the new normal current circumstances, consequence of Covid19 pandemic.
