Rapid technological and social change is currently transforming the world of work. This is accompanied by changes in the demands placed on many occupations. Among other things, employees are being called upon to lead themselves to a much higher degree. It is therefore advisable to take this competence into account in the counselling process for clients in vocational, study and career counselling (BSLB).
This project pursues two objectives. Firstly, the research and practice-relevant influencing variables for self-management in the world of work 4.0 are to be researched and determined. Secondly, an innovative short intervention in the form of a "learning journal" will be developed and evaluated on the basis of the findings gained. All results from the project will be prepared in such a way that they can be directly applied by the BSLB.
The project duration is set at 18 months. The project is funded by the Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW). The contribution of the Innovation Fund also makes it possible to develop concrete training and continuing education content for the BSLB and to develop an application-oriented short intervention in the form of a "learning journal".
