You will receive an invitation to coaching by email after being selected for coaching.
The coaching starts with the OSKAR competence survey and booking a time for guidance discussion with your coach via our online booking service.
The guidance discussion will be carried out as a video conference during which you will discuss your goals with your coach.
You will start your coaching program on the digital coaching platform as you have agreed with your coach. All the coaching materials in the platform will be available for you at any time during the coaching program.
Your coach will support you in working independently and achieving your goals. During the coaching you can easily connect with your coach in chat, and monitor your progress continuously.
At the end of the coaching program you will have an online closing discussion with your coach during which you will make a follow-up plan that supports you to take next steps towards employment.
The coaching program will start with a competence survey by using OSKAR that is an easy to use tool for mapping competencies and skills.
OSKAR competence survey tool is based on ESCO - the European classification of Skills, Competences and Occupations that provides descriptions of over 3000 occupations and almost 14 000 skills.
The aim of the survey is to collect information about your professional and other competencies and skills that you have picked up along the way as well as about your motivation, and your professional interests. When your actual competencies and skills have been assessed and recognized it is easier for you to target job search correctly or select the right services to promote employment.
Recognition of competencies and skills is a beginning of the happy story of employment.
