Information about the project
E-guidance & e-governement services (еGOS)
The project will aim at improving employability and guidance practitioners’ capacity building through the activities of a prototype service that will enable the delivery of educational and vocational e-guidance services, also to cross-border mobility. This eGOS system will enable decision makers in charge with educational, training and employment policies to reach also those citizens that, for different reasons, wouldn’t be able to take benefit from traditional guidance services. In a long term, the system will allow decision makers to reduce management costs and procedures of the services (i.e. less human resources needed, less clients to the traditional services, etc.). E-guidance practitioners will be trained during the project in order to be able to manage the system and to deliver “traditional” educational and vocational actions through the use of ICT tools hosted on a multi-channel open source platform (WISP - Web-based Integrated Services Platform). eGOS e-guidance services will be accessible from final beneficiaries from Internet on their home PC, from EG-kiosks placed in their living areas and from EG-stations within the tester partners’ or any associated organization.
