Mobility Guidance Counselling Module
‘’An excellent overview of a systematic approach to supporting a student before, during and after a foreign learning experience."
"I was pleasantly surprised by the depth of exploration at each stage of the module and the wide range of related resources."
The Mobility Guidance Counselling Module was designed by Euroguidance Ireland with support from Euroguidance Sweden.
With a growing number of students going abroad to study , either as part of an Erasmus+ exchange or for the entire duration of their degree, the Mobility Guidance Counselling module was designed to provide guidance counsellors with the skills they need to support students in their quest to study, work or volunteer abroad.
The emphasis is on the process of mobility and therefore the module explores how to support the student through the 3 phases of mobility - preparation, induction and re-integration. The process is based on a model developed by Soren Kristensen PhD, an expert in Youth Mobility.
It includes information on the practical, linguistic, cultural and mental preparation students should undertake prior to going abroad. It addresses the issue of contracts between hosting and sending institutions, supports for students while abroad and underscores the importance of re-integration for students on their return home.
The module is divided into 4 parts and may be completed at the convenience of the individual Guidance Counsellor.
The module is available online, through NCGE’s Virtual Learning Environment (https://vle.ncge.ie/ ) and is recognised by the Institute of Guidance Counsellors for the purpose of CPD.
