PRÆSENTATION: Vägledning för utbildning och arbetsliv; samarbete mellan utbildningsministeriet och arbetsministeriet för ökt kvalitet och holistiskt perspektiv i vägledning. Kai Koivumäki, Närings- och Arbetsministeriet. Finland

Kai Koivumäki

arbetar som konsultativ tjänsteman på arbets- och näringsministeriet i Finland. Till hans arbetsuppgifter hör bland annat att koordinera och utveckla väglednings- och informationstjänster vid arbets- och näringsbyråer. Han är med i ett nationellt nätverk som ansvarar för ett ESF-utvecklingsprojekt vars målsättning är att skapa ett flexibelt och välfungerande servicesystem för vuxenvägledning. Kai har också lång erfrenhet som vägledarutbildare både på nationell och internationell nivå.

Presentationen:

Undervisningsministeriet och arbetsministeriet i Finland gav ut ett gemensamt policy program för utvecklandet av vuxenvägledningservicen i landet år 2005. Programmet resulterade i ett utvekclingsprogram för åren 2008-2013 som finansieras med medel från Europeiska socialfonden. Syftet är att höja kompetensnivån i vägledningen både inom utbildnings- och arbetskraftssektorn. Det skall också utvecklas nya former av elektronisk, telefon- och videoservice som är riktad till den enskilda medborgaren. Likaväl skall det lokala och regionala serviceutbudet koordineras bättre.  Allt detta borde göra det lättare för medborgarna att hitta den service för karriärutvecling de behöver. Presentationen skall fokusera på hurdan inverkan policy samarbetet kan kan ha för den enskilda individen när hon/han söker stöd, information eller vägledning i olika övergångsfaser i karriären.

Anna Lóa Ólafsdóttir, Island

Anna finished her B.ed from the Teachers University in Iceland and a diploma as an educational and career counselor from the University of Iceland. She also studied for one year in the theology department at the University of Iceland. Anna is currently working on her master’s degree.  Before entering the world of lifelong education Anna worked as at teacher for five years in primary school as well as working as an instructor at one of the Icelandic health centers.
Anna currently lives in Keflavík with her two sons, at the age of 18 and 22.

Experience

Anna has special interest in giving people with little or no further education the opportunity to find out how they can improve their position in the labour market. Ever since the Educational an Training service Centre in Iceland signed an agreement (in 2006) with MSS – the lifelong learning center, Anna has been assisting people who have been facing obstacles for one reason or another. The year 2006 was a hard one for the region Anna lives in and needed an imitate action when the American Army closed its base at Miðnesheiði. A number of people lost their job and from that moment it was clear that there were many people that needed counseling at this turning point in their lives. With the depression following shortly after the army departure the number of people that have used the counseling has gone from around 200 interviews in 2006 up to around 1200 in 2009. In the year 2009 group counseling was used more frequently. 

Career counseling at the work place

In the spring 2006 MSS – the lifelong learning center in Keflavík– and the Education and Training Service Centre (FA) signed an agreement on study and career counseling services in the labour market. The aim of the counseling is to give those employees who have little formal education, immigrants, and various other groups a chance to find out how they can
improve their position in the labour market and at the same time what scholarships and programs are available. This was a timely project in this region, Suðurnesin,  as immediate action was required when the American Army closed its base at Miðnesheiði. A number of people lost their jobs and had to face an uncertain future. Many of those who had been employed at the base had limited formal education, on the other hand, they had taken various training courses related to their jobs. Consequently the counseling frequently consisted of analyzing the interests and competencies of these individuals and then assessing how these might be employed in the labour market. Quite a few former employees needed assistance in
facing the obstacles that they felt they met and were related to education, age, low self-esteem, dyslexia, lower wages, residence, jobs available in the region, etc.
Many things have changed in Iceland since the American Army left the country but career counseling at the work place has proved its purpose. Unemployment rate has gone to new heights and in this region it‘s the highest in Iceland. Carrier counselors have both been working out in the field (at the work place) and in their offices helping people to cope with those new circumstances. Many people know today where to go if they want to get further education, change jobs or have other things on their minds.

Validation of competences

Validation of competences has developed rapidly in Iceland for the past years, and the standards here are now similar to those set by the neighboring countries. Validation of competences is an evaluation and an assessment of the real competences of an individual, regardless of how or where these competences were acquired. In this region it has been a very good addition to the services of the MSS – life long learning center to be able to offer validation of competences at these times. Many people working for etc in the building industry had started in school with the aim to finish a specific vocational education, but with lot of job offers available at the time, didn‘t finish. Some of them have now been using the opportunity to get validation of competence and go back to school while the industry market is frozen.
