EMoCC – European mobility Career Counseling
European job mobility as a chance for everyone
Why is mobility so low despite the huge efforts carried out by the EU to promote it?
What can we do to promote it?
How can career counselors support their clients to move abroad?
The EMoCC project is on track, working hard to answer these challenging questions!
Co-funded in 2021 under the Erasmus + Key Action 2 Cooperation among organisations and institutions, EMoCC is a Cooperation Partnership in Vocational Education and Training addressing current and aspirant career counsellors. Kicked-off in May 2022 and lasting until December 2024, EMoCC will produce two MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses): the first one in general Career Counselling, the second one in European Mobility. Career Guidance is already a precious ally for individuals struggling in building, reshaping, and upskilling their professional path. If adequately combined with mobility expertise, career counselling can become a powerful “change driver” as to intra-European mobility, crucial to both labour market capacity and development.
What makes the difference between EMoCC and similar past and ongoing project on professional mobility? It is a sound qualitative research on successes and failures of relocating abroad. Currently in progress in Italy, France, Germany and Spain – for a total of more than 2.000 expected participants – two combined studies will allow investigating personal attitude and motivation to work mobility and assessing individuals’ starting “suitability to move”. Moreover, EMoCC focus is more on career counselling aspects – supporting decision-making processes leading to aware and effective mobility choices – than on advisory ones – facilitating mobility processes once chosen.
