Specially tailored career and study counselling
Career and study counselling facilitates decision-making in vitally important situations for pupils and students, supports self-knowledge and points them towards further education or career choices that best suit their abilities, skills and ideas.
- Identify and become aware of their own strengths and weaknesses
- Understand their own personality traits
- Recognize their motivations, interests and coping mechanisms in difficult situations
- Evaluate their memory skills and learning strategies
- Discover their potential for learning and possible fields of professional interest
Our approach could be described as “holistic” – it is impossible to make plans for the future without also considering one’s past and present. Everything can’t be solved with reason alone, ignoring practical experience, emotions or human adaptability. We choose not to focus solely on education and professional life, our programme also targets the development of our clients’ motivations, values, interests and roles.
- A parent interview, approx. 40–50 minutes.
- The morning section of the assessment with the pupil/student lasts approx. 3 hours.
- A lunch and rest break.
- The afternoon section of the assessment with the pupil/student lasts approx. 2½ hours.
- The parents do not have to be present during the assessment.
Total: 6½ – 7 hours
A detailed written report can be picked up by the parents in person or sent by mail after it is completed.
For parents and students there is a short description of what the methods are for and what information they can expect.
This method allows the evaluation of several aspects of one’s personality, such as extraversion, openness to experiences, agreeableness and conscientiousness. Each of these traits is represented through component characteristics, the extent of which is often reflected in everyday life experiences. This method is also used to evaluate personality traits. We are using the most recent Czech translation of the 2015 standardised questionnaire.
The questionnaire was designed to evaluate a number of ways we react in difficult situations and the strategies we turn to in order to manage them. The test identifies stress management strategies which the person is significantly conscious of to be able to describe. The strategies used can be more or less appropriate and constructive in various situations – some lead to stress reduction, but some to its increase. Establishing which strategies are being used can therefore be very useful in further discussions of their appropriateness for the given person. If you are interested, we can also use these results as the basis for further personal development and try to find better ways to resolve stressful situations.
