On the 23rd and 24th of September the LLLP was in Paris, for the kick-off partners’ meeting of the Keep In Pact project, focused on promoting multi-partnership cooperation in lifelong career guidance. The project is coordinated by the Cités des métiers International Network (RICDM), Associate Member of the LLLP, together with Universcience from Paris, Learningdigital from Italy, the Municipality of Porto (Portugal), the Croatian Agency for Science and Higher Education (ASHE) and the Lifelong Learning Platform. The project aims to gather a few case studies of multi-partnerships for career guidance across EU countries; to prepare a toolkit for mutual learning and training activities; to identify key competences for the lifelong career guidance professionals, describe them and create a guidance for their assessment; to build a first ever European Community of experts on lifelong career guidance. LLLP being a great example of cross-sectoral and multi-level partnerships, will play a key role in the project for the upcoming two years.
During the meeting, partners were introduced to the “Cité des métiers” label, visiting the premises of Cité des métiers in Paris; they had a general overview on the main aspects of the projects, discussing the methodological approach of the planned activities, agreeing on the next steps and on the internal management.
Cités des Métiers, as integrated model of lifelong career guidance centres, and Keep In Pact project will be presented during the LLL Week, as an example of how to empower citizens through lifelong career guidance centres, so if you are interested in such an interesting topic, stay tuned!
